It’s been very busy at the uni lately, some new things coming soon!
And this is some of the work iPhoned from Format Festival in Derby - Maria Kapajeva, Sasha Kurmaz, Björn Larsson and the Archive of Modern Conflict (Erik Kessels Album Beauty is worth a notice as well!).
This is some of the photographic/drawn/painted/generated/whatever stuff that I really enjoyed seeing at Art13 in London.
Although I recall enjoying lot of pieces in this new art fair, I had specifically iPhoned work by Myoung Ho Lee, Adam Jeppesen, Nina Mae Fowler, Rob and Nick Carter, Jorma Puranen and Tim Maguire among a few others.
From A Series of Unfortunate Events (2011) by Michael Wolf and ‘Carretera de Rubi, Terrassa, Spain’ from No Man’s Land II (2012) by Mishka Henner.
Studies of the web and digital archives in context of contemporary art.
A Head With Wings (2011) by Anouk Kruithof.
Studies of contemporary photobooks and their relevance in the current photographic discourse.
In my opinion, Kruithof is one of the most prominent young artists who constantly questions and pushes boundaries of photography. This amazing book published by Soth’s LBM is an excellent example.
Looking at institutions, their transformations and roles they play in the development of contemporary photography.
“… recurring note of critique was the apparent desire of of various institutions to solidify the boundaries between artistic media. Museums act as heritage keepers of specific media (photography, design) in separate departments, therefore needlessly sustaining an artificial separation between entwined histories. Similarly, art academies still hang onto the unnecessary division into separate departments of film, photography and art.” - Michiel van Iersel summarising the dialogue between Charlotte Cotton and Lisa Oppenheim
So i’ve had a set of prints made of my Dark Ages series and i thought i’d give them away for free. So if you’re interested in receiving one give this a blog and send me an email (email@example.com) with your name, address and the number of the print you would like. One print per person. Enjoy.
