Raster Gallery: JASANSKÝ, POLÁK -True And Clear Photography


Opening on Saturday, April 5th, 6 PM

The exhibition runs until 17.05.2014

The exhibition 'True and Clear Photography' discovers some little-known, but remarkably inspiring figures in contemporary photography: Lukáš Jasanský and Martin Polák have been working together since 1985 and exploring the conventionality of the medium in various ways. Their work draws from both the tradition of conceptual art and from classical studio, landscape, and street photography, seducing the viewer all the while with their subtle sense of humor. Ordinary life is the subject of a sophisticated game in these images of people spied on the streets, and meticulously composed, though quite everyday still lifes. It leads to disarming aesthetic adventures, but also to more general reflections on the essence of photography, its relationship to reality, and the functions of documenting and creative work.
