Radiant Matter by Kim Westerström

Never felt so good by Kim Westerström

Kim Westerström is showing new work at Breadfield, Radiant Matter is a series consisting of photographs, sculptures and sun dye prints.

Time and memory are intimately tied to objects used in daily life – things that paradoxically have become almost invisible because of their presence. In his projects Kim Westerström investigates the ability – and inability – of images to capture and convey the past. His installations combine various media, and photograhy often has a key role both conceptually and practically. Like imprints that humans leave on objects, photography is also indexical in character. Photographs are physical traces of the past and give our memories a sensual quality, as well as an undercurrent o melancholy, which is present in his work.

The exhibition lean on the history of photographic processes and techniques, erasure and imprint, as well as sculptural processes of casting.
