Thomas Albdorf combines classic photographic genres with modern visual techniques.

About

His landscapes and still-lifes are boldly aesthetical, but his use of the photographic medium is highly conceptual. Using both analogue and digital techniques, Albdorf edits photographs of perennial visual clichés found online (such as a setting sun, a mountainous landscape) after which he subjects these found photos to image recognition software and automatic image generation. The resulting image is recognisable and surrealistic at the same time. It is Albdorf’s way of critically interrogating stereotypes in our digital online visual culture. 

Foam presents the first solo museum exhibition of Thomas Albdorf’s work. The artist also created new work especially for this exhibition, which will be displayed for the very first time in Foam.
