ROBERT HEINECKEN: PARAPHOTOGRAPHER AT WORK

Heinecken’s work explores the normalising effect of mass media, the link between original and copy, true and fake.Heinecken’s work explores the normalising effect of mass media, the link between original and copy, true and fake.

Although he rarely used a camera, Robert Heinecken (1931–2006) is widely regarded as one of the most influential photographers of post-War America. He described himself as a ‘paraphotographer’, and it was as such that he tirelessly explored the nature of photography and the ideas traditionally associated with it through a large variety of techniques, including sculpture, video, printmaking and collage. The exhibition at WIELS examines a pivotal period in his career, during which Heinecken used a Polaroid SX-70 camera.

‘Biography’ presents a wide selection of works from Elmgreen & Dragset’s complex universe, including sculpture, performance and interactive installations. Works from the late 1990s onwards will be shown together with recent projects, and all together they will create a unique insight into the artists’ oeuvre. Elmgreen & Dragset consider an exhibition to be a work of art in itself, with all its narrative, choreographic and social possibilities and ‘Biography’ will examine the very conditions of exhibiting.
