Musician and photographer Nicola Kuperus constructs beautiful, unsettling images with her hometown of Detroit, Michigan as her backdrop. One half of the eletronic band ADULT., Kuperus’ early videos and performances for the band are haunted with the same macabre, Hitchcock-esque imagery. In her series Dark, Colorful World, Kuperus further plays on dislocation and suspected violence as she poses her models in cropped, stiff, and awkward positions. With the buildings and green suburbs of Detroit present but never obvious, the staged images evoke a feeling of discomfort and unknown.
