From Facebook to Instagram, the proliferation of photo-based imagery has arguably changed how we interact. Today, we are more likely than ever to communicate through images. Similarly, the digital image is now ubiquitous within contemporary art practice. In this exhibition, artists incorporate photographic details into larger installations or sculptural works. By manipulating photographs—setting them next to sculptural objects, or stitching, folding, or drawing on them—the artists create works in which the photos appear to interact in space, the picture plane and the 3D elements converging and supplanting one another. The overall effect invigorates the formal relationship between object and image.
