KK Outlet’s next exhibition will see a selection of photographs from the fourteenth edition of the found photography series ‘in almost every picture’ by their very own Erik Kessels.
This exhibition marks the return of a favourite theme of Erik’s : imperfect images, damaged by accident or design. But whereas past editions dealt with blurry black dogs and intrusive fingers, this new publication focuses on an altogether eerier case. ‘in almost every picture #14’ invites us to partake in a semi-nude detective story: a collection of sunbathers with their heads (and often large chunks of their bodies) punched out of their Polaroid frames.
But why? Who chopped the heads off all the sunbathers? What is your theory?
It is natural for us to search for answers and make sense of these images, we want to understand why they exist as they are, but we are left guessing until the very end, where within the book’s closing notes it is revealed exactly why and how these images came to be. Mystery solved.
This latest series was discovered in the late eighties by the photographer Toon Michiels. Edited & designed across 148 pages by Erik Kessels.
The exhibition launches on Thursday 21 May 2015, 7-9pm at KK Outlet and will continue to run until 30 May 2015, where the book is also available to purchase.
