Jakob Hunosøe employs photography as an instrument uncovering new meanings in our immediate surroundings. Using simple artifices, he tries to add a poetic and humorous dimension to our everyday surroundings.
Everyday life is the focal point in his photographs, though the reality they portray is full of extraordinary effects. Ordinary objects, such as chairs, dishcloths, bookshelves, kitchen utensils, bathroom interiors, rackets and tools, appear in unexpected and surprising constellations.
No digital manipulation is employed. With daylight as the only light source and his own staging of the situations in front of the camera, the photographs merely document what takes place in front of the lens.
IN SQUARE CIRCLE exhibits a selection of works made over the past five years.
Texts by Sarah Giersing, Mette Sandbye and Jakob Hunosøe.
