Failed to Bind

Two slide projectors, 2013

A collection of Current Affairs Photos from different newspapers and magazines between the 70’s until today runs parallel too a collection of statements made by visual artists in interviews through the same period of time. Two slideshows play next to each other; one shows the texts the other shows the images. The viewer confronts the two as connected, obliged to impose a new meaning while, by confronting the texts and the images together. The news photos are being decontextualized from their reality and the artists statements are being observed in relation to images of “real” events.
