Aerial photography does not create space but registers surfaces

2016 - 2018
Mixed-media installation,
dimensions variable 

This installation presents a series of photographic images on different media – such as canvas, paper, vinyl, fabric and moving image – displayed in a manner that resembles a contemporary art group exhibition.

The images belong to a collection of aerial views posted by international art curators on their Instagram accounts, as these agents document and share their movement from one art event to another.

By this appropriation through exhibition, I emphasize the role of the curator as a producer of images through shows, publications and other media, and seek to invert the established power roles between artist and curator.
