Clare Strand is a British conceptual photographer. Over the past 25 years she has produced work using found imagery, kinetic machinery, web programmes, fairground attractions and most recently, large-scale paintings. She often rejects the default settings of the photographic medium and without apology, welcomes a subtle, slow-burn approach to her practice. In collaboration with Arkiv i Nordland, Strand is currently undertaking archival research, exploring local traditions, photographs and histories of Bodø and the wider region. She has a particular interest in textiles, clothing and florals, which will inform the exhibition. 

Curator: Alexander Mourant.
