Digital collage

I’ve been experimenting with collage in different ways for the last 10 years. My visual research is focused on appropriation and reframing of images found in digital collections. I’m interested in creating fragmented narratives in video (cyclic films) and publications, and sharing my everyday practice on my social media accounts. The themes of my research are wide in scope, but mostly focused on the virilitudes of war, the misogyny of androcentrism, the mechanisms of desire and the deterioration of the public debate.

Collage means reshaping reality, modifying the perspective so we can understand different ways of seeing the word and living in it. It means teaching the eye to perceive the narrative nuances present in any image, and how to control them. My work practice is quite often minimalistic, I look for the minimum required to move an idea forward, so collage is also a way of editing.

I usually separate the process of researching and editing from the process of cutting and pasting. I believe the images tell me what they need to be, what need to be done with them, so I like to take the time an image needs to unveil before my eyes and I only work with the asset once a sense of purpose is very clear.

I see collage becoming more mainstream trough the use of new technologies of AI for digital works (which is something that doesn’t interest me, really) but also on traditional scissor-glue style collage, with people repeating patterns and themes endlessly as a social media phenomenon (which, again, doesn’t interest me).

For Your Viewing Pleasure

An additional selection of works by artists we have our eyes on.

An avid collector of paper, Harald Kröner attends to the specific weaves and textures of his material as he transforms it into drawings, objects, and installations. Kroner’s practice is rooted in two-dimensional works on paper, which he adorns primarily with ink but also with such materials as lacquer, enamel, and spray paint. Inspired by East Asian art practices, Kroner embraces the effects of chance in his compositions, applying lines, splotches, and dots at random.

Matthew Magee is an American contemporary artist who is best known for his minimal abstract geometric paintings, sculptures, prints, photography, assemblages and murals. Magee was born in Paris, France in 1961 and raised in the state of Texas, USA.

Born in 1933 in Biella, Italy, Michelangelo Pistoletto is one of the most influential contemporary artists of his generation. He was a leading figure in the Arte Povera movement, with a body of works rooted in Conceptual Art and figuration. The Italian artist is both a sculptor and a painter, who is best known for his conceptual sculpture and Mirror Paintings.

John Stezaker is known for making Surrealist-influenced collages from found images, which range from vintage photographs to old Hollywood film stills, travel postcards, and magazine clippings. The artist adds new meanings to his old materials as he splices together images of film stars, layers landscapes over portraits, and carves silhouettes from layered pictures. The resulting compositions are alternately ironic, disconcerting, and poignant.

Anneke Eussen utilizes the formal principles of Minimalism evoking geometric seriality, yet quietly deploys hidden narratives and secret histories in her work. Her practice revolves around cultivating and repurposing found materials into meticulously detailed and ghostly wall sculptures. Through layering, arrangement, and assembly interventions, Eussen is never manipulating the original shape of the objects and insists on using their original framework.

Kazuhito Tanaka at DOCUMENT Lisbon

In Picture(s), Tanaka continues his exploration of the convergence of painting and photography across over a dozen mixed media works: equally formed by abstract paintings and collages made of torn chromogenic photographs, the works in the exhibition suggest a series of dialogues from their two distinct materialities.
