UNKNOWN POSES

– Art Prints Collection by Sinke & van Tongeren –

The photographs shown here are directly related to the DS&vT taxidermy process, which requires enormous patience and dedication. Before being mounted, the animal, reptile and bird skins are carefully bathed to ensure they are as clean and bright as possible. While these empty skins float in the soapy water, they seem to be revived back into life, performing a sort of graceful water ballet. Sinke and van Tongeren wanted to capture the magic of this poetic and mesmerising effect in these bold and spectacular photographs.

 

The first collection of DS&vT photographic prints was released last year and bought avidly by collectors, including Damien Hirst who paid tribute to their artistic vision by investing in a complete set. Its success inspired Sinke and van Tongeren to explore the concept further, striving for poses that are – as the titles suggest – Unknown. The paradox is that these floating skins achieve compositions that are equal to the beauty of the original creature, but in a sense exist in a parallel plane to them.


All photographs are limited to 10 prints, signed and numbered. Prices start at $ 1.950,-
Museum quality framing is optional.
