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 naked eye.In Mapping, 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.
