The Many Lives of Erik Kessels

Budapest, Magyar Fotográfusok Háza (Mai Manó Ház), 22 May 2019 - 18 August 2019
Hosted by the Mai Manó House, exhibition 'The Many Lives of Erik Kessels' presents the Dutch artist’s and designer's photographic body of work by way of seventeen projects and an installation comprising many hundreds of photos and occupying entire spaces.
Over the twenty years of his career, Kessels has come to the fore as one of the main and unquestionable points of reference in the field of so-called ‘found photography’ with Time Magazine even calling him a visual sorcerer. Instead of shooting new images, for most of his projects he brings together pre-existent photographs and reuses them as tiles to form his own mosaic. He is a photographer without a camera or even a lens: in his practice, photography is a ready-made element to be sampled and re-contextualized in keeping with a Dadaist matrix.
