Sense of Space

Aziz + Cucher

INTERIORS

Anthony Aziz and Sammy Cucher are among the pioneers in digitally manipulated photography. In their confrontational images they are continually sounding out the boundaries between reality and fiction, a quest in which the achievements of biotechnology play an important role. The series FAITH, HONOR AND BEAUTY (1992) consisted of a series of idealised nudes. In DYSTOPIA (1994), by rubbing out and closing up mouths, noses and eyes, they changed portraits of models into repulsive monstrosities. With INTERIORS Aziz+Cucher go still a step further and with the help of the computer create imaginary spaces from photographs of human skin. Although the images suggest three-dimensional qualities, at the same time they have a corporal character. The result is as monumental as it is emotionally perplexing.
