14 March until 9 June 2014

Superficial Hygiene aims to introduce to the Netherlands a set of practices of a younger generation of artists who employ, adapt, and corrupt the grammar of our accelerated environment to propose a new understanding of the relation between the mediated image and text, and objects and the physical body. The most recent developments in image production allow for a new kind of realism, one, which has caused a further rift between objects and their representation. As a result, our physical relationship with images and things in our daily environment is changing. Superficial Hygiene brings together diverse artistic practices in which this new relationship between the artificial and the real is scrutinized. LINK De Hallen
