miart 2014: Batia Suter’s installation at the Fantom-Marsèlleria booth

We are happy to announce our participation to the upcoming edition of Miart – International Fair of Modern and Contemporary Art, which will take place in Milan from March 28th to 30th.
As a result of our collaboration with Marsèlleria‚ a multidisciplinary exhibition space in Milan‚ we present Vanishing point, the site-specific installation created by Amsterdam-based artist Batia Suter.

The work was commissioned to the artist by Fantom and it is the second installment of the collaboration between the curatorial collective and Marsèlleria. An ongoing project that debuted with the organization of a conference at Unseen Photo Fair, Amsterdam, September 2013.

The walls of the booth are completely covered by a series of monumental prints resulting from the digital manipulation of found photographs – Suter’s method often involves the use of photo-animations, image sequences and appropriated materials. By transferring old images in new contexts, she explores themes such as the iconification of images and their immunogenicity.

Charged with new associative values, the photographs of Vanishing point contribute to the staging of a force field of imaginative metamorphosis, a space that is rich in hidden harmonies and expressive accidents.

Cut Through Montagu Pass – South Africa, a poster of a manipulated picture from National Geographic Magazine, complements the installation and is available for free in a limited stock for the duration of the fair.

Batia Suter was born in Switzerland in 1967. Her work has been widely exhibited in Europe and America, and her series Parallel Encyclopedia and Surface Series were published by Roma Publications respectively in 2007 and 2011. She currently lives and works in Amsterdam. www.batiasuter.org – www.romapublications.org
