I’m very excited my work will be part of the exhibition “Fabulous Failures” at the famous Photography Festival in Arles this summer.
The exhibition is curated by Erik Kessels:
“Nowadays most art, design and photography portrays perfection. Contemporary popular culture is drowning under a tidal wave of superficiality and over-perfection. Posed, polished and controlled. As if it were a reflection of our endless search for clarity and calmness and an antidote for the chaos in our lives. Digital techniques has created an abundance of images. We shoot and shoot until we get it right. The imperfect pictures get deleted and the good ones get a filter or a touchup. In our perfection-obsessed culture we shy away from errors and that is, in my humble opinion, a disaster. Luckily failing is something artists and photographers more and more take as a subject for their work. This exhibition shows a large overview of the best fabulous failures found in contemporary art, design and photography, made by a group of artists that like to fight perfection, embrace serendipity and search for fabulous failures.”
