Scarlett Hooft Graafland: Soft Horizons


If there's one thing you can say about magic, it's that it usually only lasts for a moment: now you see it, now you don't. The same could be said of Scarlett Hooft Graafland's landscap installations. They are, by definition, temporary. The pigment washes away, the balls bounce ut of sight, the reindeer thunder into the distance, the men and women turn for home, and the balloons drift away. But the images the leave behind are unforgettable.

‘Hooft Graafland sometimes spends months on the edges of the world. Until it happens. Until, as in a feverish dream, her fantasies can become reality. Until Bolivian women wave sticks of candyfloss on salt pans, the entrails of polar bears trace out a palm tree at the North Pole, dromedaries with pigment-tinted humps shuffle across the desert, hats hover over hot water springs, until a stuffed blue reindeer stands out amidst thousands of its living fellows. Until this exceptional location has acquired its poetry, captured in a photographic image. Then it is time to leave, because the third reality has now been achieved. The reality of the magic, of the reality within the image, which could never have been conceived beforehand.’
IJsbrand van Veelen (documentary filmmaker)
