Stock Images of War exhibition trailer

Stock Images of War exhibition trailer by Amalia Ulman

Amalia Ulman presents the trailer for her upcoming exhibition Stock Images of War at James Fuentes in New York opening on January 11th. For the show the artist explores the themes of deconstruction, confinement, fragility and war. “In a global community of emotions, war is gossip, torture is a parallel act of deconstruction and images serve the function of heavy artillery,” Ulman explains. “Stock Images of war shows the dark illuminated by spotlights and a series of augmented wire figures produced during confinement will weakly find their place in the empty room, constantly fighting to stand their ground, maybe hesitating between standing and laying down.”
