Aleksandra Mir

Aleksandra Mir Work from her oeuvre. Mir is performing at Exit Art tonight. Below is an interview from the Venice Biennale with Roberto Balò & Lorenzo Capanni. The first question is obviously: what are you going to show at the Biennale? I have printed 1 million fake postcards of Venice, entitled “VENEZIA (all places contain all […]

Haris Epaminoda

Haris Epaminoda Work from his oeuvre. “…deceptively intimate works of Epaminonda: collages, escoriating and beautiful. They collectively form a kind of liminal space through the imagery of a past – the mid 20th Century – yet they don’t address a period in time, perhaps so that it might be the past, again. They are composed […]

John Stezaker

John Stezaker Work from his oeuvre. “John Stezaker’s work re-examines the various relationships to the photographic image: as documentation of truth, purveyor of memory, and symbol of modern culture. In his collages, Stezaker appropriates images found in books, magazines, and postcards and uses them as ‘readymades’. Through his elegant juxtapositions, Stezaker adopts the content and […]

Mark Boellaard

Mark Boellaard Work from Collage. I received an email from Mark this morning with this work, enjoy. “By juxtaposing elements from a wide and unusual range of resources I attempt to create original works that invoke a sense of shock, wonder and delight upon the spectator. Works that are very much open to interpretation and […]

Barbara Breitenfellner

Barbara Breitenfellner. Work from Collages. “(…) One could say that Barbara Breitenfellner essentially „exhibits exhibitions“, every installation becoming an exhibition in itself, like those we can find in crappy private collections, in strange American suburban museums or even in trendy art galleries. For her show at CAPRI, the artist presents printed works for the first […]

John Baldessari

John Baldessari Work from his new book, Pure Beauty. “The combination of film, photography and painting has become one of the key elements in Baldessari’s art. Beginning with his early photo-and-text works from the late 1960s, the exhibition includes his extensive use of found film imagery in the combined photographs of the 1980s, the irregular-shaped […]

Adrien Missika

Adrien Missika Work from Standing Waves and Postcards. Spend time on his website, the vast majority of his works are excellent. “Notions of authenticity and artificial images are at the heart of Missikaʼs work. He subtly explores the relationship between the viewer and the world and depictions thereof. While his works reflect the visual symbolism […]

Randa Mirza

Randa Mirza Work from Parallel Universes. “Parallel Universes offers the spectator the gift of ubiquity. The title nods at the “Multiverse theory”, the hypothetical set of multiple possible universes embracing together all of reality. Mirza’s work exposes the coexistence of past and present layers of war and peace realities. Through her visual constructions of horror […]

Kent Rogowski

Kent Rogowski Work from Love=Love. “Rogowski’s collages are created with pieces of puzzles which are cut from the same die but depict different, unrelated images. Using these photographic fragments as his palette, Rogowski creates entirely new compositions by his careful mapping of their collisions. The intermixing of these glossy idealizations of flowers, bucolic scenery, and […]

Daniel Ehrenworth

Daniel Ehrenworth Work from Sky / Water. “Sky/Water is a series of black and white inkjet prints which butt together a separate shot of the sky and the water to form a fake horizon. In addition to being a tonal study, the work is about that act of thinking.” – courtest of the artist.
