This weekend, 29th to 30th of March, Crush XV hosted the exhibition of my favorite artist: Akume. He exhibited four of his sculptures: The dull flame of desire, Stabat mater, Rex tremendae, and Twisted muse.
My work is, in a sense, a form of aesthetical violence being forced on the viewer, an impulse to feel violence through violence and reflect.
I have photographed Akume’s sculptures and every shooting was an exciting challenge, as I was trying to capture all the intricate details and materials, but also to find the right angle and lighting that would express the meaning behind each artwork.
