HESTER 2012-2014
Following the example of abstract art, particularly that of early twentieth-century synthetic cubism, Asger Carlsen processes his images from several different photographic vantage points at once. The human figure is documented, then re-presented, disfigured and sculpted digitally. It is deconstructed and then reassembled, the goal being not to depict specific bodies but instead to extract a vivid experience of what they might be. It is the body exposed as anonymous, hyperaesthetic form, distinguishable by its detail yet stripped of any particular identity.
