Cortis & Sonderegger
The Zurich based collaborative duo Jojakim Cortis (b. 1978) and Adrian Sonderegger (b. 1980) have been internationally exhibited in institutions such as Arter – space for art (Istanbul), Museum Folkwang (Essen) and the Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York). For the exhibition at BNKR, they will be showing selected photographic works from their “Icons” series, in which they recreate a number of world- famous historical images by taking pictures of models that present these scenes. In addition to these works, the artists will show for the first time one of their models as part of an immersive spatial installation that directly engage the viewer in their act of trickery.
