  • Collaborations I

    Oliv­er Mark invited 61 artists to work on his pho­tos. Any- thing could be done to them: cut­ting, scratch­ing, twist­ing, fram­ing, past­ing, mount­ing, embroid­er­ing and paint­ing bey­ond recog­ni­tion. The inter­ven­tions were as sur­pris­ing as they were innov­at­ive. The format was vari­able – so was the type of photo paper. Some­times the photo was glossy or matt, some­times on baryta paper, hahnemühle paper or can­vas, etc. It was up to the artists to decide. Two prints were made, with one work remain­ing with each artist.
