Hot Mirror presents a survey of work by internationally renowned Dutch artist and photographer Viviane Sassen.
Sassen is one of the most innovative photographers working today and cites Surrealism as one of her earliest artistic influences, seen in the uncanny shadows, fragmented bodies and dream-like landscapes in her work.
For Hot Mirror Sassen selects individual images from her notable art photography series of the last ten years, as well as new photographs and collages. These selections are be combined to create ‘image-poems’ that draw on the Surrealist strategies of collage. Hot Mirror also presents a new version of Sassen’s immersive film, Totem, 2014, which places the visitor inside a surreal landscape.
Hot Mirror is timed to sit alongside our exhibition exploring Lee Miller and Surrealism in Britain.
Published on the occasion of the exhibition we are delighted to offer Viviane Sassen: Hot Mirror, available to pre-order. This title focuses on Sassen’s fine art photography, revealing a surrealist undercurrent in her work.
Also available an Artist Edition, generously produced by Viviane Sassen for The Hepworth Wakefield from the original work, in archival pigment ink and collage, Three Planets, 2017, from the series Of Mud and Lotus.
