Overview participating exhibitions
In the series SECURITY BLANKETS by Anita Cruz-Eberhard and David Howe, security is a warm blanket, not only in the figurative but also in the literal sense. Their security blankets, of incredibly soft fleece, are printed with images that were found on the Internet and refer to the notion of ‘security’. The softness and warmth of the fleece, however, form a sharp contrast with the disquieting imprints on the blankets; Cruz-Eberhard and Howe thereby evoke the confusing positive and negative emotional connotations of the word ‘security’.
Anita Cruz-Eberhard (Switzerland, 1974) studied at the International Center of Photography and the School of Visual Arts, both in New York. Her work has been shown in exhibitions around the world, including Les Rencontres d’Arles. David Howe, (United States, 1952) has been taking photographs since the age of ten and studied at Harvard College and the International Center of Photography in New York. His work has been shown in various exhibitions across the United States.
