An exhibition that brings together four projects by young artists who reflect on the nature of the photographic image, the gaze, representation. Surface (New Life) is not exactly an exhibition of photography. Rather, it is one on photography, understood as a set of codes used for communication, a dimension in which our vision of the world is continually changing. From the luminous globes placed on the ground by Chris Cornish to evoke Renaissance theories of perspective to the newspapers and bar tables of Calla Henkel and Max Pigetoff, everyday pieces of the culture 2.0 that is the greatest resource of our time, passing through the works of Sarah Cwynar and Hanne Lillee: the former reproducing compositions of household objects, blending digital and analog techniques, the latter reworking images found online. Rather than celebrating the works of the individual artists, Surface (New Life) aims to show the empty space between one shot and the next, and to reflect on the incessant process of change to which the language of photography is subject.
