Photopolymer, edition: 10
Repnau printed five pictures using photopolymer technique, each one signifying a past exhibition. In today’s rapidly moving social media world, the afterlife of exhibitions often becomes more important than the exhibitions themselves. Photogenic documentation is essential to allow artists to present an appealing personal archive at any given moment. Repnau photopolymer prints are not just subjective interpretations – they’re also the only visual documents left of the works – there simply aren’t other recordings or they have been lost.
