Foam_Fotografiemuseum Amsterdam presents Mapping by
Dutch photographer Kim Boske (b. 1978, Hilversum). Boske is fascinated
by the system of time and space. In her work she tries to capture this
illusive reality by exploring the mutability of things. Her photos
incorporate various levels, merging different moments in time together.
They reveal phenomena that are impossible to see or witness with the
, Boske investigates how
physical movement in time and space continually changes our perspective
on the world. By eschewing individual perspective and instead combining
multiple perspectives in a single image, she creates a new, layered
reality. Here Boske presents a series of views of trees that she
photographed from different angles. She combines the various shots to
form a new image that shows each tree in its entirety. All the
perspectives of the tree exist simultaneously; they overlap each other
and join together to form a single image in a changing world of
appearance and disappearance. Kim Boske graduated in
2005 at the Royal Academy of Fine Art in The Hague. In recent years she
has shown work at Amsterdam’s Centrum voor Fotografie, Netherlands
Photography Museum in Rotterdam, Singapore’s International Photography
Festival, Ron Mandos Rotterdam, New Jersey USA (all in 2008), as well
as Platform 21 in Amsterdam in 2006.Mapping was made possible with support from SBK Amsterdam, Van Bijlevelt Stichting and Rijnja Repro. Six limited editions by Kim Boske are available for purchase at Foam Editions.
