DISMANTLED / RETURNED
description: 12 photographs, pigment ink on Baryta paper, on Di-bond, sizes varied between 60x90 cm to 140x200 cm
commission: Personal initiative with support from the AFK Amsterdam Art Fund and the Municipal City Archive of Amsterdam.
Site: Light Hall of the Amsterdam City Archive
The project is a literal retrospection on a decade of dismantled cultural palaces in Amsterdam.
Photographs I took of these dismantled cultural palaces over the course of time (see as well ‘Hidden City’, are printed on a large size and then positioned on the original location, where the camera once stood.
Then I photographed the setting in such a way that the print and its environment merge to the extend that they interact with each other.
On the final photograph the space is depicted twice, dismantled and completed.
