Descripción de la Exposición

Dirimart is pleased to announce Vik Muniz’s first solo exhibition in Istanbul. The exhibition brings together works from his internationally acknowledged Metachrome, Pictures of Magazine, Postcards from Nowhere, and Repro series. Having grown interest in the photographic representations of his sculptural works in early steps of his career, Brazilian artist Vik Muniz eventually focuses mainly on photography. Indeed the artist believes that the consumption of images, and communicating through them create a tension between the object and its photographic representation, and make interaction with the image complicated for individuals. Muniz incorporates the use of familiar objects harvested from the various periods of pop culture and art history, in his practice to create bold, ironic and often deceiving imagery. His practice reflects two main characteristics of postmodern photography: appropriation and material based setup. Taking familiar images as reference point, artist manipulates the way we perceive the image by recreating them in unusual ways. Muniz reinterprets the images with the repetition of humorous and sometimes distressing units such as caviar, chocolate syrup, diamonds, dry pigment, dust, garbage, magazine shreds, paper hole-punches, sugar, thread, and toys.
