I See What You Like
28 October to 26 November | Preview Friday 27 October 6-8pm
The next exhibition at Fidra Fine Art features the smartphone photographic work of German artist, Holger Mohaupt. Set in our everyday landscape, Holger’s cleverly observed narratives elevate commonplace experiences into engaging stories. His work invigorates a sometimes austere world thoughtfully and aesthetically.
“I See What You Like” is a playful hint at the curation of the show. All the images on display are “likes” from the artist’s Facebook page, which he has been regularly feeding with his distinct imagery of his every day experiences for the past five years – social media acting as a new form of participatory curation.
To contrast with Holger’s handprinted digital photographs is a small series of portrait etchings by the Aberdeen artist John Bulloch Souter (1890-1972). These pieces, created around one hundred years ago using a process more laborious than the relatively instantaneous digital techniques of today, invites the viewer to consider the changes in aesthetics, processes and how art is consumed and enjoyed today.
