Blow Flies shows different perspectives in contemporary photography and fine art working with the arthistorical genre of Still Lifes. In the rooms of the Photoforum you'll not only find photographic approaches but sculptural, filmic and ephemeral interpretations of Still Lives. The decay, the process that leads to the downfall and its different conditions are central to this show. The suppressed, the invisible, the ambigious relation to life and the animated, and the tension-filled areas between nature and artificiality.
