Persijn Broersen (NL), Margit Lukács (NL)
Persijn Broersen and Margit Lukács studied at the Sandberg Institute and at the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam, where they live and work. They use a wide variety of media – most notably – video, photography, animation, and graphics to examine the sources of contemporary visual culture. With video and installation pieces that incorporate (filmed) footage, digital photography, and animation, as well as 3D prints and images appropriated from the media, they demonstrate how reality, (mass) media and fiction are strongly intertwined in contemporary society. They create immersive parallel worlds of spectacular images fully absorbing the viewers in which ‘nature’ functions as a reflection for our media-dictated culture.
