Floating Population (Exhibition)
Galerie Block C, Groningen, March–April 2014
Exhibition of my book Floating Population, a documentation of several projects shot during my various work periods in China between 2009 and 2011.
By visually assembling photographs, video stills and photographed objects like textiles, rubber shoes, construction materials, a sock, piles of postcards and posters and more I investigate the stream of Chinese migrant laborers.
As tactility, materials and structure are important in my work I decided to make the page compositions by hand. I printed all the photos, put them on the studio floor together with the products and took photos of that assemblage again.
This exhibition at Galerie Block C shows how the book was made.
