The World Library of Sanne and Lukas is a visual library documenting subjects in various places and times. Its encyclopaedic character emerges from a method developed by the photographers to explore unfamiliar themes. Several screenings are used in the imagery and produced in offset combined with riso-printed pages. The design expresses the two voices (visions) of the photographers on the same topic (their walk through Nowa Huta) by overlaying them, creating a constant shift of visual signatures (dis)balancing throughout the layout. Questioning if you miss out on a picture or not. Carefully captured with a numbering system to take the reader through this alternative guide. How to look at our world, our collective history is always coloured by ones personal view, perspective and context. That fact is rather embracedand formed the base for the two photographers to place their imagery next and on top of each-other in the publication.
About the Artist
Sanne van den Elzen is an artists who applies photography and video to question role patterns, behaviour and rules. She is interested in tradition versus ritual, in rules versus autonomy. Her work exists of restructuring and reconstructing (existing) images, by developing a work method that includes room for experimentation, and in which the method itself becomes part of her project
Lukas Heibges (b. 1985) studies in Holland and Berlin and isa currently doing his M.A at the university in Bielefeld. He lives and works as an artist, shuttling between Berlin and Amsterdam. As a co-founder of a photography and film collective he understands both photography and film as central tools to visualise social topics from an artistic point of view. He considers these media as the starting point of a wider expression, which combines theoretical considerations with societal debates. The result is a transfer of his artistic expression back to the intersection of theory and practice to question not only the subjects he is working on, but also the medium itself
