Action Against the Frame – Selfportraits Trying to Break Out of Picture Frames by Steven Guermeur.
Wonderful series of images from originating from Compiègne / France and now living in Vienna and Sofia artist Steven Guermeur, who obviously has no desire to conventional picture frame. Instead, he makes miniature self-portraits that communicate in a fun way with the photo frame. He calls “Action Against the Frame” this series, they documented in most cases, the attempt of the artist to escape the classic picture frames, what next to each black and white photographs and said frame also aids such as wood chips, strings or chains are used.
“My work often compiles the rapport between the use of the image, which serves to create poetry among the forms, and the concept, which questions the means of association of the idea to the form, I tell stories about the art context and the impossibility to escape from it.” – Steven Guermeur
