Foam Opening: Erik Kessels - Album Beauty
"Album Beauty" is an ode to the vanishing era of the photo album as told through the collection of Erik Kessels, who is well known for his unorthodox manner of installation.
Photo albums were once a repository for family history, often representing a manufactured family as edited for display. They speak of birth, death, beauty, sexuality, pride, happiness, youth, competition, exploration, complicity and friendship.
"Album Beauty" is an exhibition about the visual anthropology of the photo album.
