Foam is proud to present the work of the Swedish photographer JH Engström in the exhibition 'Close Surrounding'.

This is reflected in his pure and authentic photographs and in the exhibition at Foam. The exhibition includes unique, previously unseen collages. The books that Engström has published are another important element of the exhibition.

Foam 3h: Egon van Herreweghe - Paintings and Sculpture

August 04, 2014

In zijn tentoonstelling Paintings and Sculpture laat Egon van Herreweghe een andere kant van fotografie zien. In zijn onvermogen om de werkelijkheid te reproduceren, ontrafelt hij in zijn werk het creatieve proces van de totstandkoming van autonome beelden. De resultaten van zijn onderzoek zijn tijdelijke presentaties en kortstondige ruimtelijke ingrepen die op treffende wijze de status van het beeld en haar genetische materiaal laten zien.
