Kooiker Paul . Sunday

2011, 84 Seiten, durchgängig farbige Abbildungen

Paul Kooiker’s new book Sunday consists of a great diversity of images of one female model. Bright colours, porcelain skin, shiny shoes: turning the pages means moving a lightening sculpture in a natural way, almost in harmony but at unexpected moments bizzare and surrealistic.

The spirit of Hans Bellmer lives in the twenty first century in Kooiker’s monograph Sunday. These limpid outdoor photographs capture a naked fat woman wearing high heels, her white body so bleached that her genitalia are invisible, rendering her doll-like. She poses, faceless, in positions that are sometimes sexual, sometimes motionless and morbid. Around her is a back garden, with a homemade dais for her to pose on, and views of dark trees and bushes with blood-red leaves. Kooiker uses his contemporary technique to create an oblique, threatening, somehow vintage atmosphere.
