Akt, 2002-2005

The series Akt (Nude) was realized in the studio of study according to living model of the Fine Arts Academy of Cracow. It reminds the photographic documents for artists produced in 19th century. But, if Maja Forsslund is interested in the body and in its academic representations, the artist takes care of showing the moment of the pose. She integrates the elements of support and mainstay, the portable radiators and the slippers of the model which usually excluded from the drawings of the students, underline the artificiality, the theatricality and the strangeness of these scenes.
