Cityscapes - The Dream of Modernity, 2009-2017
A project on the relationship between the city and the human beings
A city that grows encroaching neighbourhoods, in constant state of transition with enormous buildings, surpassing any sense of scale. The periphery constantly becoming central. Prime space demolished. In this perfectly aseptic cityscape, are spaces in-between buildings a nuisance? In narrow hallways, under flyovers, and wherever there is space available, the real city fabric is able to manifest itself and create a much needed diversity. These spaces serve as a reminder that attempts to rationalise the beautiful complexity of life lead to miserable failure. Read the full statement here
Cityscapes is a portfolio spanning several years with the images taken in Asia during my residence in 2009-10; a publication in 300 copies with 62 plates produced in 2016; a limited prints edition (2017) and the production of a museum-quality exhibition in 2017.
The portfolio is available for acquisition and exhibition and includes 24 limited edition fine giclée prints applied on acrylic panels.
