Descripción

"Aglaia Konrad photographs metropolises such as Tokyo, Sao Paolo, Cairo, Paris and Mexico City. She then manipulates these images using techniques including collage and repeating, mirroring and enlarging them. In her two- and three-dimensional installations she not only plays with the phenomena and the images of the city but also toys with questions concerning ambiguity, identity and the perceptions of the viewer. Elasticity is an ambitious and substantial tome that offers an insight into the characteristics and images of the metropolis in a stratified way. Konrad has a highly individual way of manipulating the images, revealing a fascinating topography of urban fabrics, facades, infrastructure, architectural forms and surfaces. In a photographic essay spanning 240 pages she uses her personal photographic archive to 'install' her work in the book in a new sequence and rhythm. The book also offers a reflection on the work in the form of essays, by Daniel Kurjakovic (freelance curator, art critic and art historian), Antonio Guzman (director of the l'Aquarium/Art et Recherche exhibition space/art centre in Valenciennes) and Eran Schaerf (artist) respectively." Text: Guzman Antonio, Kurjakovic Daniel et al. cm 20x27; pp. 248; COL and BW; paperback. Designed by Mevis & Van Deursen. First edition, fine condition. N° de ref. de la librería 16216

Sinopsis:

After photographing metropolises such as Tokyo, Sao Paolo, Cairo, Paris and Mexico City, Aglaia Konrad manipulates these images by mirroring, enlarging, collaging and copying them. In her two- and three-dimensional installations she not only plays with the phenomena and the representation of the city but also toys with questions concerning ambiguity, identity, and perception. An ambitious and substantial tome, Elasticity offers insight into the characteristics and images of the metropolis. In Konrad's highly individual image manipulations, a fascinating topography of urban fabrics, facades, infrastructure, architectural forms, and surfaces is revealed. This 248-page visual essay presents her personal photographic archive "installed" in book form in a unique sequence and rhythm. Elasticity also offers a reflection on Konrad's work through essays by critic and curator Daniel Kurjakovic, artist Eran Schaerf,and Antonio Guzman, director of art space L'Aquarium in Valenciennes. Published in conjunction with L'Aquarium, Valcenciennes and Argos, Brussels.
