Objectif Exhibitions - Barbara Visser: Double Features14/12/2011
28 January 28 - 10 March 2012
Barbara Visser's (b. 1969, Amsterdam) practice has been occupied with the uncertain relationship between registration and dramatization. Many of her works deal with the notions of original and copy, and raise the question of whether these copies are 'well behaved' and do justice to the original, or whether they are fraudulent signs that swallow up the original in a vortex of delusion. Formally, the work varies greatly, ranging from photography, film and video to printed matter, text and performance yet remain grounded in recurrent themes such as authenticity and artificiality, perception and cultural coding, convention and exception, reproduction and documentation. By infiltrating existing systems in various ways, and reflecting on them, the artist challenges the viewer to reconsider ingrained perceptions.
"Double Features" is a new solo project commissioned by Objectif Exhibitions.
