Litvak Contemporary is pleased to announce its current exhibition, Lucid Dreams, featuring artists Itamar Freed & Kristina Chan.
Itamar Freed and Kristina Chan present photographic works that search for vanishing notions of realness in the natural world. Influenced by post-impressionism, Japanese prints and contemporary photography, Lucid Dreams questions the veracity of the photograph in the tension between the real and the fantastic. As in a lucid dream, the artists control the narrative, characters and environment in the depicted landscapes. The work features photographs of places and sites the artists have visited, combined with images from curated environments such as museums, zoos, and digital materials. Freed and Chan question how images of places might displace or augment their understanding and memory of them.
