Absalon Kirkeby – Still Fantasy
‘Still Fantasy’ is a kaleidoscopic refraction of vibes produced by Danish artist Absalon Kirkeby. The book presents a range of image types as seen through the extended eye, accessing a state of intimate reality riddled with meaning. X-rays, objects turned into patterns, machines, traces and signs, luminous colours, doors, and urban sites combine to create a sense and narrative of a place that elucidates something revelatory. Kirkeby uses digitally manipulated photography to engage the everyday with a surreal and dreamlike gaze, evoking artificial experiences of physical gestures and tacitness through the means of mediation and abstraction.
