As part of the Next Level exhibition series, Foam presents the work of multi-disciplinary artist Dominic Hawgood (1980, UK). In this exhibition, titled Casting Out the Self, Hawgood visualises the effect of the drug dimethyltryptamine (DMT), which he personally experienced as a transfer into the digital realm. His work creates a hallucinatory effect: photographs seem to move, flat surfaces reveal hidden depths, and the perception of space turns out to be an illusion.

In 2012, the American artist Alex Prager (1979, Los Angeles) won the Foam Paul Huf Award for her series Compulsion. Seven years later, Prager returns to Foam with an exhibition entitled Silver Lake Drive, in which she unites ten years of her photographic and film works. Prager’s work is cinematic, drawing inspiration from her surroundings, personal experiences, street photography, pop culture and film. She utilises a range of style elements reminiscent of early film genres such as film noir, thriller, melodrama and crime fiction. Women have frequently been the protagonist in Prager’s work, driven by emotion.

With this exhibition Foam underlines it’s wish to both represent the latest developments in photography and to exhibit cutting-edge and relevant works. The exhibition will be presented at Atelier des Forges in Arles, France.

From the 3rd of May, Foam 3h presents the work of Lilian Kreutzberger (1984, Netherlands). Kreutzberger is trained as a painter, but in her conceptual projects she combines photographic techniques with other media such as sculpture and architecture. In her project Whiteandgold && Blackandblue, the artist investigates the experience of material and space in the digital domain. Her multimedia work, which has a strong photographic dimension, is elusive and mysterious, and at the same time very tangible. Foam 3h displays a combination of reliefs, sculptural works and collages.
