BERG Contemporary at Photo London & LOOP
For its third edition, Photo London has established itself as a world-class photography fair and as a catalyst for London’s dynamic photography community and the international creative society as a whole. Photo London harnesses outstanding creative talent and brings together the world’s leading photographers, curators, exhibitors, dealers and the public to celebrate photography, the medium of our time.
The fair will take place at London’s Somerset House and BERG Contemporary will be located at booth D12, representing exciting photography work by Finnbogi Pétursson, Sigurður Guðjónsson, Steina and Woody Vasulka.
Photo London is a place to encounter the most innovative emerging artists, new work by established masters and rare vintage pieces, and as such is guided by a Curatorial Committee comprised of some the field’s most esteemed curators, critics and museum directors.
A high level Advisory Board advises on the development of Photo London. The members of the Board play a key role in encouraging the development of the various networks on which Photo London depends. The Advisory Board is committed to maintaining Photo London as a major event in the international art world calendar.
In the mid-1970s, while working with various engineers and designers, the Vasulkas developed electronic tools specifically designed for art usage. They merged analog methods to digital methods, resulting in the precursor of many computer aided visualizations used today. In Golden Voyage, Magritte’s painting The Golden Legend (1958) becomes a pretext for exploring the possibilities of video, a medium that was still being defined at the time. The baguettes in the painting are the recurring motif in the video. The loaves of bread are manipulated electronically to change their location in the landscape.
