Doube Take

Jojakim Cortis and Adrian Sonderegger: Double Take
Curated by Sascha Renner, this exhibition plays with the iconic images of international photographic history. Scenes reproduced through a ‘meticulous bricolage of cardboard, sand, wood, fabric, cotton wool and plaster’ are subverted by the inclusion of the studio environment in the final image. Through a series of reconstructed photographs, ‘Double Take’ questions the stability of our perception amongst endless reproductions.
