UPCOMING EXHIBITION    /    MÅRTEN LANGE    /    06|06|14 - 06|07|14

 

OPEN SPACE PRESENTS A NEW SERIES OF PHOTOGRAPHS BY SWEDISH ARTIST MÅRTEN LANGE. A COLLECTION OF FRAGMENTS FROM AN URBAN SETTING, THE SERIES CAN BE READ AS AN ATTEMPT AT MAPPING A CITY. THE SUBJECT MATTER RANGES FROM HIGHLY DETAILED CITYSCAPES TO STUDIES OF HAND GESTURES IN THE STREET. SHIFTS IN THE LEVEL OF MAGNIFICATION GIVE THE IMAGES A CINEMATIC FEEL. LANGE DESCRIBES THE IMAGES AS "MICROSTORIES", SMALL PARCELS OF INFORMATION WHICH CAN BE USED TO BUILD A LARGER VISUAL NARRATIVE.

 

THE NEW WORK MARKS A SHIFT FROM LANGE'S 2012 SERIES ANOTHER LANGUAGE. WHERE THE PREVIOUS WORK WAS PRIMARILY CONCERNED WITH SCIENCE AND THE NATURAL WORLD, THIS SERIES REVOLVES AROUND QUESTIONS OF CITIES AND INFORMATION DENSITY, ECONOMIC INTERACTION AND THE FLEETING PHENOMENA OF EVERYDAY LIFE.
