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)and Leyla Cardenas (*1975, Bogota) two 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).
The fair is located at the Volshaus (tram 15 - station Clara platz) at a walking distance from Art Basel.
opened from noon to 21pm
preview on June 14 from 6pm to 10pm.
