Thomas Kuijpers | Fotopub 2019


07/31/2019

 

Thomas Kuijpers will take part in the next edition of the Slovenian festival Fotopub, in Novo Mesto (SI) from 31 July to 4 August 2019, with his project When the Twins Were Still Beautiful.

 

The starting point of this project is a painting by an unknown artist depicting the iconic Twin Towers. Fascinated by this painting that evokes the iconic NYC landscape prior to 9/11, Kuijpers started compiling an extensive archive of images and objects that represent the buildings. He questions the power of the images we consume, and the psychological impact of how traumatic and violent events are represented in the media.Thomas Kuijpers turns the exhibition space into a diorama in an attempt to reconstruct this romantic and innocent image that existed before a new, more dramatic one became embedded in our collective memory.
