The Part of Works


Relics of the Real

Folo exhibition, 30 april- june 2016, atAkinci, Amsterdam


In Relics of the Real, Broersen & Lukacspresent a series of new works that show a timeless world dictated by the woesand wants of our virtual times. With the mechanisms of illusion as a leadingmotive in their work, they focus on the search for the pristine, be it in themyth of Eden or in classical motifs from the past. In these works, theboundless dimensions of virtual space accumulate the most breathtaking mirages,but are inevitably subject to their own insubstantiality.

Distorted and fragmented along the way,the complex construction of Broersen & Lukács immersive imagery is in theleast concealed, constantly reminding us that, with the boundless dimensions ofvirtual space, it’s quite a challenge to keep a grip: propelled from onecliff-hanger into another, one finds oneself captured by a loophole of scenesreminiscent of  a distant reality that never was.
