Oliver Blohm

Between the extremes:
Beauty and destruction // acceleration and deceleration // mankind and experiment // digital and analog. Oliver Blohm‘s newest photos depict our society’s paranoia.

Oliver Blohm questions everything today’s instant photography stands for, using polaroid films and a heavy 60 pound, large-sized camera. With calculated destruction during the photographic process, Blohm creates his very own, anachronistic aesthetic that melts together with the themes. Hybrids of analog material and the digital world are produced. Whether it be in fashion photography, landscape shots or portraits – the photos whisk the observer away into a world of abstract pictures of the mind, fluid identity concepts and morbid beauty. Oliver Blohm’s work has already been displayed internationally alongside Gerhard Richter, Georg Baselitz, Ellen von Unwerth and Jack White – now, an exhibition is solely dedicated to his work, covering 675 m2, in the Artspace, in BIKINI BERLIN.

The exhibition is curated by a special team of students from the University of Potsdam, under the supervision of the lecturer and curator Beatrice Miersch and the curator Lena Fließbach.
