In A Frozen Tale Alexia Sinclair weaves the historical narrative of Skokloster Slott, a baroque castle constructed in 17th century Sweden. She recreates castles settings and the visits of its many important guests through a combination of historical snippets, digital manipulation and highly controlled studio shoots to produce images reminiscent of traditional European paintings. The resulting works give an impression of life in the castle, from moments of significance to the simplicity of daily routine, encapsulating the myth and legend of 17th century Europe.
