A Conversation With Photography
Inkejet prints / tinted dark glass / hand glued digital printed flower photos on wodden frame / 90 x 70 cm x 3 panels / wallpaper dimensions variable.
A Conversation With Photography takes Kitsch images as its medium to inquire the canons of photographic
presentation. The work consists of three framed black mirrors and a wall covered with decorative flower
patterns. For the wall, the artist collects images via Google search engine with negative keywords such as
“discusting flowers”, “vulgar flowers”, “rotten flowers”, et cetera, to mock stereotypical ideas of “beauty”
on the internet. The framed black mirrors with frames diliberatly blended in with the wall channel undeveloped
films, inviting the audience to consider pre-existing principles of art in the transition between the two and
the three dimensions.
