OPENING THIS THURSDAY: ROGER BALLEN AND ASGER CARLSEN’S NO JOKE AT FOAM FOTOGRAFIEMUSEUM AMSTERDAM
19 Jun 2017 -
OPENING THIS THURSDAY: Roger Ballen & Asger Carlsen’s No Joke at FOAM Fotografiemuseum Amsterdam.
The exhibition will be on view from 23 June – 27 August 2017.
In the collaborative project titled No Joke, artists Roger Ballen (1950, VS) and Asger Carlsen (1973, DK) explore the more sinister sides of the human psyche. Together the duo produced 37 images, without ever working in the same studio at the same time: their creative exchange and co-creation has been a purely online affair. Their menacing work evokes a sense of anxiety and longing that is usually experienced only in dreams.
No Joke at Foam is the first presentation in a museum of this work. The obscurely designed presentation shows framed images on dark-grey walls. The works are accompanied by bizarre sculptures and installations created by the two artists on-site, specifically for this exhibition. The sculptures form spatial renderings of their photographic images.
