Running concurrently at DITTRICH & SCHLECHTRIEM Berlin and V1 Gallery Copenhagen, is an interesting new exhibition featuring collaborative works by Roger Ballen and Asger Carlsen. NO JOKE is a series of black and white photo based works bizarrely altered through the use of digital and analog editing. On now till October 22nd at both galleries.
'NO JOKE is a hauntingly beautiful surreal voyage. The works are visceral, vicious, humorous, explicit and tenderly intimate at once. The two authors mutual admiration, trust and respect shines through. The series is Robin Hood avant-garde – Brassai, Dubuffet, Bacon, Moore, Sonic Youth, Aphex Twin and Die Antwoord are all in the mix. It is refined DIY visual punk and could not have been created before high-speed Internet, Photoshop and ultra fast processors.'
