Immediate Icons – Jack Davison
Starting from Thursday 28 April, from 5.30 p.m. (with an introduction and Q&A by curator Zippora Elders) Foam presents the first international exhibition of Jack Davison (1990, United Kingdom). The twenty-five-year-old studied English literature and is an autodidact photographer.
“His work shows a passion for the discipline’s history, and in it we can see Davison revisiting a diverse range of genres, styles and techniques spanning from early 20th-century avant-garde experiment to objective documentary, and from portraiture to conceptual study. Yet his practice is very contemporary as well, and visibly rooted in the borrowing practices of Internet communities such as Flickr, which laid the basis for today’s social media culture.”- describes the curator of the exhibit.
