The exhibition 'Transcendence – Outside Time' at FLATLAND is on view with Valérie Belin (1964, France) and Kim Boske (1978, The Netherlands). The meticulously crafted images of both artists are united by the subject of exploring transcendence. Belin and Boske each approach photography as a material, rather than a medium, placing subjects out of context and time. They strip away the function of representation and search for realities beyond the signified. Their work can be described as trans-semiotic: they use iconic signifiers to challenge the expectation of the viewer and let us rethink the way we inhabit the world. The known categories that normally equip our gaze obtain new meaning, causing their images to dance with transversal energy. Courtesy FLATLAND.
