ASGER CARLSEN: WRONG

3_850x40finlow

 

 

Asger Carslen’s photographs are fascinating. Sometimes it takes a while for my eyes to understand what is going on and then it seems that something new appears every time I look at them again. His project Wrong, takes us into a world of interesting characters in banal situations, where something is always a little (or a lot)…off.

Wrong, was published as a book  by Morel Books and will be presented as a solo exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Rome (MACRO) as part of Rome’s International Photography Festival starting September 27th.

‘Based on a true story’ Asger Carlsen’s series is a haunting and disturbing perspective of the everyday.

In some cases subtly surreal and in other blatantly blasted with a dystopian hallucinations, the series is visionary and original.

By employing a traditional black and white palette, Wrong peers past reality into a parallel existence.

The series is more then appropriate during a time in which there has been lobbying and calls to label beguilingly photoshopped advertorials with warnings. Through using the same mechanisms and tools of the trade, Wrong has broke through the looking-glass into a parallel visual culture, opposing our present perception of hyper-reality and constructed beauty.

Dark and humorous, the absurdity and distortion of Wrong is a satirical travesty of photographic culture as the ultimate simulator and the simulacrum. –Morel Books
