Icons

“Icons” is a long-term project about iconic images of international photographic history. In their studio, Cortis and Sonderegger build three-dimensional models, and after that, they photograph these constructions from a particular angle so that the new images appear again as two-dimensional scenes. So “the copy of the copy of the copy of reality” leads to a vertiginous metaphysical experience that repeatedly confronts the viewer with issues that have to do with visual perception.
