TORCH proudly presents A Paper Perspective, the sixth solo exhibition of Popel Coumou at the gallery. It showcases a selection of recent works by the photographic artist. Next to a number of large-scale photographic works gracing the arches and walls of the gallery, we present for the first time a selection of original collages.
Popel Coumou's photographs question our perception of space. Working from an analogue technique of collage and miniature, the simplest physical constructions are transformed into intriguing, dreamlike images that compel us to question what we see. The slight shadow of the paper's edge, the lack of a line where you expect it to be drawn: these details create both confusion and depth. The artist suggests entire worlds with nothing more than the delicate lines of paper and light.
Simultaneously to the exhibition at TORCH Gallery, Fotomuseum Den Haag will present the solo exhibition Paper and Light. Coinciding with these two exhibitions is the publication of Popel Coumou: Paper and Light, which presents an overview of her work to date.
