In Conversation with... Spencer Tunick
In Conversation with... Spencer Tunick is the ninth episode of our ongoing series of artist interviews. Tunick transforms public spaces with temporary monuments of people rewriting the locations through their complex, organic compositions; they are figurative yet abstract, inherently public, and deeply intimate: they depict sincere unity and wild differences. The photographs are simultaneously painterly, sculptural, and installations. In this show, the selection of pieces reflects on the artist's work with abstraction, adornment, traditional group portraiture and the 'body without clothing'.
The series 'In Conversation with...' is aimed at introducing our artists and exhibitions at Reflex Amsterdam by sharing the artist's vision, as well as some more background information on the new work exhibited at the gallery. The videos also serve as a digital archive of our exhibitions from 2018 onwards. This video is made in the context of the exhibition Spencer Tunick: Public Interventions, which is on view from 17 September–7 November at the gallery, located at Weteringschans 79A, Amsterdam.
