The young women gracing the canvases of Pre-Raphaelite painters strike the viewer as attractive yet eerily soulless. As “beautiful corpses” they embody the feminine ideal of the late 19th century. Christiane Frohmann comes to them from the future, bringing these Pre-Raphaelite girls to life with their wry observations on digital culture in the present.
“Amazing! Images for our time!” (David Wagner)
