We Forget, 2015

Sale price500 KWD

The Blur Series is an ode to the collaborative process between a camera and its photographer. A series of dye-sublimation photographic prints on aluminium, the artworks are of photographs taken with a Lubitel 166+ Lomography film camera, which is a 2008 reproduction of the original 1977 Russian design, the Lubitel 166. Each photograph in the series is an abstract visual interpretation of a specific location. Throughout these works, we learn that the camera is equally capable of telling a story on its own, acting as the artist’s partner rather than the artist’s medium.

We Forget was taken in Sao Paolo, Brazil, at the site of SESC Pompeia, a sports and culture center by the prominent architect Lina Bo Bardi.

“I visited a photography exhibition that captured Lina Bo Bardi’s buildings perfectly, and since then, I have been meaning to visit them for around a decade. This image, which was captured during my visit, reminded me of the teachings of Swiss architect Peter Zumthor. Zumthor is one of the few architects who stuck to his guns and is doing what we all wish we could do as architects: poetic and uncompromising architecture. We Forget is a reminder of why we started in this profession in the first place, and how we as artists and architects should continuously strive for that poetic craft.”
