NOTE:

Cajsa von Zeipel works with large format sculptures that carry references to both fashion and teen culture, the Renaissance masters and the classical tradition of sculpture. They are modelled in polystyrene and the final form covered with a layer of plaster. The white surface, the unclothed figures and the realistic depiction of the tall and thin characters have an aesthetic that is simultaneously appealing and scary. Her figures seamlessly move from the attractive to the repulsive, grotesque and studied.
