Questioning the medium photo
The project proposed for Photo London focuses on the materiality of the image and the layers of time that are simultaneously revealed. This conceptual approach of photography will unite Sebastian Riemer (*1982, Germany), Leyla Cardenas (*1975, Bogota) and Yang Yi (1971, China), three artists from different culture who both use photography to question the medium itself . Those artists have a similarity with an archeological approach to explore the image, its construction and its perception. The exploration starts from existing documents, at times found images, archives or paintings (Riemer) or a rework on photographs the artist had been previously shot(Cardenas and Yang Yi).
