About The Pregnant Virgin
Constructed with characteristic precision and an instinct for surrealism and surprise, The Pregnant Virgin feeds on symbolism and visual texture in a sense reminiscent of classic ‘art’ photography or religious painting, but its self-conscious edge gives it a distinct and hard-to-fathom charge.
The photographs in this arresting new collection negotiate surface and interiority and welcome tensions between contingent reality and archetypes, often uncannily recalling day-to-day life in intensely physical and opaquely allusive scenes. With The Pregnant Virgin, Rødland explores analogue photography in dialogue both with online digital culture and visual art from before photography existed as a stable medium.
