In her previous series Parts and Drape, Eva Stenram digitally cut up existing images in order to examine the relationship between an image and its viewer. For her upcoming show at Amsterdam, she further explores her use of found images and what it means to be looking at them.

Alicja Kwade uses different strategies in her work, based on thorough scientific-artistic research.
By disfiguring the reality and the manipulation of materials and shapes, the viewer is constantly misled. Kwade creates sensory illusions that test our thought and perception.

altblog – Bruno Zhu – 02

With New Arrivals, Bruno Zhu (Portugal, 1991) remodels the Foam 3h library into another reading room – one that flattens the representation of reading itself. Twisting time and space, both physically and conceptually, the installation juxtaposes visual motifs from the private space into the public and vice versa. This way, Zhu light-heartedly explores his fascination for photography’s ambivalent symbol as surface and object, representation and appropriation.
