2016

About the Item

'Shadow Play', diptych - 2016 'We painted the room deep blue sea over the mint green and opened the blinds, allowing the sun to flood in waves across the walls. We furnished it in light.' 20x48cm, Edition of 10 plus 2 Artist Proofs. Archival Print based on the original Polaroid on Hahnemühle photo rag paper. Signature label and certificate. Not mounted. Exhibition: Instant Dreams at the Saatchi’s The Other Art Fair LA, March, 2019, Bombay Beach Biennale March, in the permanent collection of the newly founded Polaroid Museum 2019 both curated by Stefanie Schneider. Published in Optiko Journal 2018 and in her artist book, The Long Way Home by Lisa Toboz (Static Age UK), 2018 about the work: "Before cancer, I had long red hair like a mermaid, and within a few weeks of treatment, it started to fall out. I shaved my head and watched myself transform into a different person: not only physically but also mentally, and now, when I look in a mirror, I see me, who I’m meant to be." Lisa Toboz. Lisa Toboz is a self-taught artist from Pittsburgh, USA using mostly Polaroid photography. Her work explores self-portraiture and the forgotten landscapes in and around the rust-belt region, but her most recent project, “Dwell,” navigates the territory of chronic illness and healing. She has exhibited internationally, and her first zine, “The Long Way Home,” was most recently published by Static Age UK. Member of Film Shooters Collective and the 12.12 Project.

  • Altstadt Rêveries #06 [From the series Goldenbogen & Zouzou]
    By Carmen de Vos
    Located in Morongo Valley, CA
    Altstadt Rêveries #06, 2008 [From the series Goldenbogen & Zouzou] Digital color print based on original Polaroid on beautiful PHOTO RAG ULTRA SMOOTH 305gsm - 100% cotton by HAHNEMÜHLE, Hand signed & numbered by the artist, edition of 7 - nr 02 Unmounted. Carmen De Vos - Artist statement Flying Freelance Portrayer. Purveyor of Exquisite Photographic Peculiarities. Chroniqueur and Archiver. Founder and Editor-in-Chief of the late TicKL-Magazine. The Belgian artist Carmen De Vos is a slow photographer. She registers, portrays and thinks up odd stories. She shoots Polaroids to frame these mental escapades, they get so easily out of hand. She enormously longs for what she’s afraid to loose: real human contact, the slowness of being and creating, the tangibility of materials. Almost without exception she uses old Polaroid camera’s, long time expired film and self-made filters. Her tools and methods - such as film bleaching and deliberate film obstruction - are not precise and are not even geared towards a perfect representation. They often yield results - such as colorisation, deformation, unsharpness - which she could never have predicted on forehand with any certainty, because their flaws do not allow for calculation. She’s not in control. She fights the material. She plans, stages and directs but the decayed chemistry and off-focus lenses add their magic. All by themselves. Which merrily surprises her. Or ruins her image. This battle attracts her as much as it frustrates her. She loves to create within these limitations, to try to produce the best possible image within the narrow circumstances given. Luckily, she’s a sucker for imperfections. Once upon a time she found herself guilty of home-crafted mischiefs for TicKL, her English art porn Polaroid magazine. She never really got cured from naughtiness. She can’t help but traveling back to these blessed times of free-love photography...
