#11: CONTEMPORARY PHOTO
On March 31, in collaboration with Galleri Charlotte Lund, we enjoyed the exhibition B-Camera by Yeondoo Jung - an artist internationally recognized as one of the leading Korean contemporary photo and video artists. And what a perfect day for our March session! We couldn't have had a more beautiful spring morning weather than we had. Big thanks to everyone that came by and enjoyed some #artforbreakfast with us!
And special thanks to Galleri Charlotte Lund for hosting the session, and to NOA Relaxation for sponsoring the breakfast!

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
Yeondoo Jungʼs series B–Camera reconstitutes specific scenes from movies in the artistʼs memory. The artist chooses well-known movies that cross physical and symbolic boundaries of race, culture, and national identity. He also chooses the filmʼs title as the name of his artwork. The audience experiences at the same time their own memories of the movie and the layers of the artwork itself. The nature of the work emphasizes the blurred lines between current phenomenological reality and cinematic fantasy. It is composed as a diptych of photographic works. One part is a layered work of cutout photographs where each element is shot and produced individually. The second is shot from a side angle as if captured in the making of the first layered image. Together these images represent a cinematic spectacle as constructed by the artist. The clearly fabricated three dimensional image represents on one hand fantasy, while the flat photograph gives a sense of location and awareness.
