Ouverture – Ex Eggs

Stereoscopy is yet another means of staging the flawed relation between pairs. The three-artist collective called ZimmerFrei resort to the nineteenth-century optical device to give their lugubrious scenes of New York the illusion of depth. Reminiscent of Scorsese’s Taxi Driver, the stereoscopic images should be viewed alongside ZimmerFrei’s contribution to the exhibition’s catalogue: a two-page collage of graphic pictures referencing the Abu Ghraib photos.
