Carrie Schneider’s output, in the artist’s own estimation, comprises performative photographs and short films. Her family, friends, as well as their and her own psychological states, are often the subjects of her works, though the images range from the quotidian to the fantastical. Schneider says, “I love the idea of creating a fiction and having photography give it that tie to truthfulness.” In her early works, the artist would often appear in her own photography, representing a character struggling against some force of nature in an impossible scenario. Her series “Derelict Self” (2006-07) featured images of the artist closely mimicking her brother in appearance and behavior, as a way of exploring their familial relationship. “Burning House” (2011), for which Schneider built a small wood house every day to light on fire, explored the feeling of perpetual panic.
