This artist duo creates video works, installations and graphic works, often staged in parallel worlds and reflecting on today’s visual culture. The way Broersen & Lukács visualise man’s relation to nature goes hand in hand with a visual inquiry into the production and perception of image. Broersen & Lukács construct monumental works in which nature functions as a mirror for our media-dictated culture that seems increasingly to exist in a virtual world. Photography forms the starting point for the diverse media and techniques employed by the duo, but is never the final result.
Next Level: Persijn Broersen & Margit Lukács - Point Cloud, Old Growth
The museum provides the setting for new installations which will be exhibited for the first time, alongside existing work. At Foam’s request, the duo, in collaboration with composers Berend Dubbe and Gwendolyn Thomas, Shahram Yazdani and Alec Kopyt, developed an entirely new three-part installation consisting of sculptures and projections, in which nature is examined as a construction of the human mind.
Since the autumn of 2015, Foam presents the exhibition series Next Level, with the support of Ammodo. The series is aimed at introducing the wider public to innovative art by relatively young artists who are making radical new use of the medium of photography.
Next Level: Persijn Broersen & Margit Lukács – Point Cloud, Old Growth is supported by Ammodo and the Mondriaan Fund. Foam thanks Stichting Foam Friends and Foam Fund for their generous support of this exhibition. Read more on how you can support Foam.
