Lazer-Cut Books on De-centralization

1
London based interior architect Myrtle Tzortzi has created two laser-cut books, which offer a critical view of the role of de-centralization in Greece. More specifically, her work explores how cultural habits are transported and transformed  in a period of economic crisis and social instability. Her two intricately designed books are the result of extensive fieldwork. Tzortzi interviewed people that have experienced de-centralization and she tried to narrate their journey in her books. As each book is opened and moved through, its pages affirm a temporal and spatial sequence, within which certain cultural traits are ‘carried over’ and others are abruptly lost.

Impossible Architecture

filip_dujardin_02

Impossible Architecture by Filip Dujardin is a collection of photomontages of impossible architectural structures created using photographs of real buildings in Belgium. The photomontages, which have clear surrealistic references,  seem perfectly ordinary at first glance, revealing their absurdity only as the viewer notices their details.

The exhibition is on at the Highlight Gallery, San Francisco from 07.02 till 29.03.
