Foam presents the first major solo museum exhibition by Persijn Broersen (Delft, 1974) and Margit Lukács (Amsterdam, 1973) as part of the exhibition series Next Level.
This artist duo creates video works, installations and graphic works, often staged in parallel worlds and reflecting on today’s visual culture. The way Broersen & Lukács visualise man’s relation to nature goes hand in hand with a visual inquiry into the production and perception of image. Broersen & Lukács construct monumental works in which nature functions as a mirror for our media-dictated culture that seems increasingly to exist in a virtual world. Photography forms the starting point for the diverse media and techniques employed by the duo, but is never the final result.
The museum provides the setting for new installations which will be exhibited for the first time, alongside existing work. At Foam’s request, the duo developed an entirely new three-part installation consisting of sculptures and projections, in which nature is examined as a construction of the human mind.
The exhibition will be opened on Thursday 22 November 2018 in the presence of the artists. You are welcome from 5.30pm onwards.
Since the autumn of 2015, Foam presents the exhibition series Next Level, with the support of Ammodo. The series is aimed at introducing the wider public to innovative art by relatively young artists who are making radical new use of the medium of photography.
