AKINCI is proud to present new work by the artist duo Margit Lukács & Persijn Broersen. After their exhibition revolving around the theme of the primaeval forest ‘Białowieża’ in FOAM Photography Museum 2018/19, the artist duo recently produced another photogrammetric digital animation, this time built on the past and future ruins of the Danish City Viborg.
In this exhibition one can see the latest developments in the works of Margit Lukács and Persijn Broersen, exploring the hybridity, in image and sound, of the ultra-thin surface of digital photography in order to contemplate its role in shaping our experience and memory. Using the figure of the digital ruin in a game-like environment, the artists show the glitches and hollowness behind and between the sequential images. The artists, in between the striking beauty of the images and sound, show the viewer how photographs no longer count as documentation of the past but are an overpowering part of everyday reality, something to touch and interact with, but also something fluid, like water, mirroring something like a reality that we never seem to be able to grasp, to penetrate or hold on to.
