Olaf Breuning is known for his impressive pictorial worlds and his ironic views on a reality that is shaped by the media. His photographs, videos, drawings and installations make use of a shared visual language and mix symbols from the world of pop and the media with icons of high culture. Somewhere between humour and a painful seriousness, they make us aware of our consumerism, Western stereotypes and gender clichés and analyse the relationship between art and kitsch, reality and illusion, authenticity and artificiality. - NFW Forum, Dusseldorf

Olaf Breuning - Faces
Olaf Breuning’s Faces plays against the ubiquitous language of today’s social media photography, creating an extensive cast of characters that emerge out of mundane domestic scenes: making breakfast, dinner leftovers, frost collecting on a window pane, taking out the garbage, a puddle of rain. Each page, an anthropomorphic face that both regards and projects the viewer, is an expression of everyday chaos and kismet – as long as we’re willing to take a look.
Combining a substantial 496 pages of photographs with a compact 7x7 inch square format, Faces will be released in the fall of 2019 by Los Angeles based publisher Silent Sound in a limited first edition run of 1000 copies, each book featuring it’s own unique cover. The playful design invites an organic and unpredictable re-arrangement of the work in essentially endless combinations by the viewer.

SILENT SOUND Jim Mangan - Time of Nothing
Save $ 0.00
In his new book Time of Nothing, Jim Mangan looks at the transforming relationships between humans and earth in this abstract series. In 2011 and 2012 the artist explored the entire Great Salt Lake including its solar evaporation ponds from a single engine Cessna plane. By composing each image in a way that flattens the landscape, Mangan not only provides the audience with a non-conventional view, but also emphasizes the many colorful layers that exist along with the subtle presentation of man's ever so invading footprint.
