John Stezaker - Captain Petzel Gallery - Berlin

John Stezaker
27th June – 31st August 2013
Captain Petzel Gallery, Berlin

John Stezaker at Captain Petzel was a gem and a half. If you ever want research collage as a medium, look no further - his works are the visual definition of the word. Stezaker is the king of the cut and paste; he fuses the most unlikely images together perfectly and he continues to push the limits of the material image.

Presenting three new films, shown for the first time in Berlin  “Cathedral” (2013), “Crowd” (2013) and “Horse” (2012)  he is finding new ways to address the image in terms of digital dematerialization. Where his paper collages highlight the uniqueness of the image and its materiality, these moving collages emphasise the multiplicity of images - acting as a digital archive for his ever-increasing collection of mass produced images
