    Possible works for Leopold Bloom shortlist exhibition | 2013 - 2018

The proposal for the shortlist exhibition includes separate works, but dealing with the same phenomenon: the different aspects of the photographic medium in reproducing artworks. What is the role of photography in our knowledge of art history and how it transforms a unique piece of artwork to reproducible data. With these works I strive to make visible the transparency of the medium.
