In the collaborative project No Joke, artists Roger Ballen and Asger Carlsen explore the more sinister sides of the human psyche. No Joke at Foam is the first presentation in a museum of this work. The obscurely designed presentation shows framed images on dark-grey walls. The works are accompanied by bizarre sculptures and installations created by the two artists on-site, specifically for this exhibition. The sculptures form spatial renderings of their photographic images.
The exhibition opens on Thursday 22 June in the presence of the artists. You are welcome from 17.30 hrs onwards.
