Jan Kempenaers @ Breese Little

10 June 2013

Antwerp-based photographer Jan Kempenaers is presenting his first London solo show at Breese Little, opened Tuesday, June 6 and running Wednesday, June 12 to Saturday, July 13. Featuring his famous Spomenik series of photographs taken of Soviet WWII monuments across the Balkans in former Yugoslavia, his images present a dystopian future, grimly offset by its awe-inspiring natural surroundings and the degenerating effects of time.

In a feature exploring ‘failed utopias’, Halciion looked at idealistic modernist architecture and its disappointments in the face of time and reality, while drawing parallels with the contemporary nostalgia for the hopefulness that the future once represented. Kempenaers work comes as close as your going to get at representing that very failure. See the Breese Little website for more details. **
