Vik Muniz

14 December 2019 - 8 March 2020

Vik Muniz is distinguished as one of the most innovative and creative artists of our time. Endlessly playful and inventive in his approach, Muniz harnesses a remarkable virtuosity in creating his renowned “photographic delusions”. Working with a dizzying array of unconventional materials including sugar, tomato sauce, diamonds, magazine clippings, chocolate syrup, dust, and junk Muniz painstakingly builds tableaux before recording them with his camera. From a distance the subject of each resulting photograph is discernible; up close, the work reveals a complex and surprising matrix through which it is assembled. That revelatory moment when one thing transforms into another is of deep interest to the artist.
