Just finishing at Foam is an exhibition of Kim Boske´s photographic series, Mapping, a few images from which Kim kindly took the time to share with me the other day. Needless to say, it gives me great pleasure to be able to showcase them here on the blog as I have long been an admirer of this work.

Boske is fascinated by the system of time and space. In her work she tries to capture this illusive reality by exploring the mutability of things. Her photos incorporate various levels, merging different moments in time together. They reveal phenomena that are impossible to see or witness with the naked eye.

In Mapping, Boske investigates how physical movement in time and space continually changes our perspective on the world. By eschewing individual perspective and instead combining multiple perspectives in a single image, she creates a new, layered reality. Here Boske presents a series of views of trees that she photographed from different angles. She combines the various shots to form a new image that shows each tree in its entirety. All the perspectives of the tree exist simultaneously; they overlap each other and join together to form a single image in a changing world of appearance and disappearance.

Kim Boske graduated in 2005 at the Royal Academy of Fine Art in The Hague. In recent years she has shown work at Amsterdam’s Centrum voor Fotografie, Netherlands Photography Museum in Rotterdam, Singapore’s International Photography Festival, Ron Mandos Rotterdam, New Jersey USA (all in 2008), as well as Platform 21 in Amsterdam in 2006.
