Ellen Jantzen

I don’t consider myself a “photographer” but an image-maker, as I create work that bridges the world of photography, prints and collage. As digital cameras began producing excellent resolution, I found my perfect medium. It was a true confluence of technical advancements and creative desire that culminated in my current explorations in photo-inspired art using both a camera to capture imagery and a computer to alter, combine and manipulate the pieces. My work is shown and published internationally; I was one of 15 women photographers chosen to receive the Julia Margaret…read more

Jackson makes convincingly realistic work about celebrities doing  things in private using lookalikes. Likeness becomes real and fantasy touches on the believable.

Posted by in News

Andreja Kulunčić’s art practice is based on exploration of new models of sociability and communication situations, an interest for socially engaged themes, confrontation with different audiences, and collaboration on collective projects. She sets up her own interdisciplinary networks, seeing artistic work as a research, process of cooperation and self-organization. She often asks the audience actively to participate and “finish” the work. Some of Kulunčić’s frequent subjects are correlations between economy, transition, feminism and racism. Art is understood as research, by which research results are no longer primary, but are rather…read more
