PARIS PHOTO, Martin Asbæk Gallery, Copenhagen
13. - 16. November 2014
Astrid Kruse Jensen’s work challenges the idea of photography as a frozen moment. Instead she inscribes the photographic medium in a living process in which the motif, the photographic material, and memories fuse – becoming part of a larger narrative concerning recognition and living memory.
In her latest work she allows diffuse daylight, the technical imperfections of the Polaroid camera, and its expired original chemistry to contribute to the final motif. The chemical traces are woven into the dense trunks of the forest and the deep dark of the water.
