Perspectives on Collage showcases eight approaches to collage. From conceptual to political and cultural critique\, this show highlights t he enduring relevance of collage.

\n

Jan Svoboda’s photogr aphs provide the exhibition with its starting point. Work includes Frag ment of a Table (1973)\, the artist’s exploration of the photographic plane using torn-up and folded remnants of his own works in simple arrangem ents.

\n

Peggy Franck creates assemblages from everyday ma terials\, these are photographed and re-presented as ambiguous two-dimensio nal images. 

\n

Nicole Wermers’ collages borrow from the w orlds of design\, fashion\, advertising and architecture magazines. She rea rranges her source material into abstractions while retaining their origina l commercial allure. 

\n

Batia Suter presents Wave (2012) a sculpture of overlapping books featuring photos of waves.

\n

Anna Parkina works in sculpture\, painting\, photography and performance. Her collages re-appropriate her own photographs into densely l ayered compositions while echoing the Russian avant-garde\, Seventies punk and the cinematic. 

\n

C.K. Rajan’s collage series Mil d Terrors (1992-96) juxtaposes newspaper images of man-made landscapes or buildings overlaid with close-up details of glamorous magazine images. Delicate but politically charged\, the series responds to the surreal\, soc ial and cultural contradictions of economic modernisation.

\n

Roy A rden’s tactile collages cast an analytical eye on history while ex ploring psychological and political themes. The exhibition features nine wo rks including Sweeper (2009) where a man sweeping the ground throw s up a cloud of coloured papers and photographic fragments. 

\n

Clu nie Reid showcases kitsch internet icons collaged alongside loose marker pen drawings\, stickers and text. Borrowing from advertising\, the I nternet and other mainstream media\, her work throws today’s visual culture into sharp critical light.

\n

Perspectives on Collage is supporte d by Czech Centre\, London.
