We are very proud to announce that this year Project 2.0 / Gallery is presenting a solo exhibition with Sebastiaan Knot 

What defines a ‘Bauhaus photograph’? In The Spirit of the Bauhaus (Thames & Hudson, 2018), curator Louise Curtis writes that, in the early-to-mid-1920s, cameras were used “to uncover previously unimagined scales and forms of reality.” One of the most famous pioneers of this approach was László Moholy-Nagy (1895-1946), interested in abstraction, space and the possibilities of the lens. “He insisted above all upon its capacity to extend human vision beyond standard habits of perception,” says Curtis.

These same ideas underpin the work of Rotterdam-based Sebastiaan Knot (1970), whose illusory geometries are created without any digital manipulation. Crisply folded sheets of card pop out from orange, purple and pink walls – casting sharp lines of light and shadow. Elsewhere, a red rectangle stands tall against a deep blue backdrop. The results are deeply satisfying, drawing the eye into abstract worlds.
