Asger Carlsen

Asger Carlsen

Work from “O“.

“Asger Carlsen continues with great lucidity and dazzling talent his personal survey on the perception of reality and the common acceptation of so-called normality.

With slight deviations of sense, images result in lightening emotional stories, film frames able to dig into the unconscious, moving revelations as involuntary reactions, hints and insights, unhinging certainties, and baring indefinite fears and anxieties, most linked to an inner world than to reality.

The glaring concreteness of the places represented by Carlsen, often crossed by a complex and not easily placed humanity, though feeding on categories and deliberately excessive stereotypes, tells of an other dimension, elusive yet well-known, hidden behind the shaky and uncertain backdrop of everyday life.” – text via Urbanautica
