Reality cut out- Thomas Böing presents Cut Outs at Gallery Kudlek van der Grinten, Cologne. Private view this Friday!

More often than not, our eyes are playing tricks on us and we all know: not all we see is necessarily the truth. In the same vain, not everything we perceive is real and vice versa, it can be complicated, a whole branch of philosophy and as such, it can be simplified. Thomas Böing did just that, took something away and offers a whole new perspective.

His work always revolves around rooms and the transformation of the spatial experience. He modifies photography works and constructs cut-outs. By using a scalpel he removes pieces of the pictures: the outlooks (or insights) through windows and doors, the pictures on the walls of museum or art fairs, or even the specimen in the cabinet of a natural history museum. He makes the present go away and the vice versa.

The images are framed between two glass plates and surrounded by wood. This way, their extract – once they are hung on a wall – casts shadows on the wall behind it.

The Kudlek van der Grinten gallery will open the exhibition on the 14th of January 2011 at 7pm with the artist present. Furthermore, the accompanying book ‘Thomas Böing, Cut Out, Fotoarbeiten 2008 – 2010’ is published by Salon Verlag.
