Alma Haser @ The Photographers' Gallery, London

Alma Haser: Cosmic Surgery
The Photographers' Gallery, London
Through 14 August 2016

Combining photography with collage and origami techniques, Alma Haser’s work seeks to expand on traditional portraiture and reflect on the concerns of millennial and future generations. This will be the artist’s first UK solo exhibition and includes prints from her critically acclaimed series Cosmic Surgery (2014-16) alongside never before seen 3D portraits and free standing paper sculptures.

Inspired by notions of surveillance and the increasing prevalence of beauty treatments, Cosmic surgery is imagined as a medical procedure to help obscure one’s identity from watchful government eyes or simply as a form of aesthetic improvement. The final prints are a kaleidoscope of facial features and curious shapes both unsettling yet compelling in their intricateness and construction. 

The exhibition coincides with the much anticipated launch of the second edition of Alma Haser’s self-published pop-up book, priced at £35.00. Prices for framed works and sculptures start from £500 +VAT.
