Vermibus show at In4Art during UNSEEN Amsterdam

Posted on September 22, 2017

From Thursday the 21st until Sunday the 24th, there will be a Vermibus' spotlight exhibition at the In4Art project Space in Amsterdam. The exhibition is part of the UNSEEN Amsterdam, a photography Art Fair. It will be the first presentation of Berlin based artist Vermibus in the Netherlands. 

The show and Vermibus' works pushes the boundaries of photography in unexpected and provocative ways.It includes works on paper and video, enriched with an in depth program to actually hear the story of the artist. The exhibition reveals the recent developments in his work showing how, through reengineering photography, real beauty can be unveiled. Vermibus’ creative process includes collecting and appropriation of public advertising posters which he intervenes upon, followed by reinstalling them to their original or approximate location in public. He hunts for fashion ads featuring beautiful, but fake models. He currently lives and works in Berlin, Germany. His most notable ad busting series are “Unmasking Kate”, “Dissolving Europe”, and most recently, “Unveiling Beauty” with interventions conducted in New York, Paris, London, and Milan.
