Foam Editions

Gabor Ösz
In the work of Gábor Ösz there is a complex relation between the form of an image and how an image arises. Gábor uses different techniques such as installation, film and photography. Foam Editions exclusively offers six Production Stills from two new film works, Ontology and Tautology. In both film projects the artist uses analogue and digital film loops. He filmed empty film projections in a space, looped the shots and filmed them again. In this way he creates a kind of Droste effect, an image-within-an-image-repeat. The films are on view at: vimeo.com/36003871 and vimeo.com/48736192
