Taiyo Onorato & Nico KrebsSwitzerland
Raise the Bar
Both born in 1979, Taiyo Onorato and Nico Krebs met whilst studying photography at the University of Zurich. Raise the Bar is a series questioning the notion of viewpoint as well as trompe l’œil but also the ability of an image to reflect reality in two dimensions. To produce it, they constructed grids repeating the main lines of the architecture photographed, and placed them in the foreground of their shot. With the artists Festival Images has designed an exhibit extending this disconcerting play on optics into reality.

The Festival Images presents Adding, Adding, Adding in the Salle del Castillo, a video displaying the visual confusion of the installation Raise the Bar from a new perspective.
