An artistic duo, 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, their work 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.
Kristina Chan’s work resides in the collections of the V&A Museum and Royal Collection Clarence House and has been widely exhibited. Most notably, at the Louvre Museum during the 5th Annual Exposure Award, Offprint TATE, TATE Modern, Royal Academy, KoMASK Master Printmaking Salon Antwerp, Oseana Kunst og Kultursenter Bergen, Museum für Moderne Kunst Bremen, Beers London, to name a few.
