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.
