  • Strude
  • Trine Søndergaard
  • year: 2007-2010
  • edition 5: 100 x 100 cm / 60 x 60 cm / 30 x 30 cm
  • archival pigment print
  • The headgear of the traditional Fanø costume – ”strude” – is the starting point for this series, which Trine Søndergaard’s has worked with over a long period of time. The ”strude” used to protect women from the harsh North Sea conditions. In the series, the artist examines the portrait as a genre by using the headgear. The costume marks the different stages of life, e.g. confirmation, wedding and widowhood, and creates a duality in the portraits between what is said and what is left unsaid; the visible and the invisible.
