Description

‘Double Take’ plays seductively with iconic images from international photographic history.

For five years, the Zurich-based artist duo Jojakim Cortis and  Adrian Sonderegger worked on a project that not only captivates with its concept, but also through its intricacy and aesthetic power. ‘Double Take’ plays seductively with iconic images from international photographic history: Pictures imprinted in the collective memory are reproduced as three-dimensional models – a meticulous bricolage of cardboard, sand, wood, fabric, cotton wool and plaster – and photographed so that they in turn represent images that are astonishingly close to the original scene. But the illusion is humorously broken by the inclusion of elements of the studio environment, along with all kind of remnants from reconstructing the scenes.
This portrayal of a portrayal of a portrayal of reality becomes a dizzying metaphysical experience: What is real? And can we trust our perception?
