Peter Funch

 

presented by V1 Gallery

 

 

Born 1974 in Aarhus, Denmark

 

 

In the series Babel Tales Peter Funch consolidates his almost anthropological ability to create patterns in the haphazardness of the world. His snapshot-alike photographs emphasize his desire to challenge the beholder's notion of 'reality' and 'fiction'. Babel Tales focus on human relations and interaction in a metropolis. Through repetition and juxtaposition Funch investigates human similarities and collective behavior, creating a strange, poetic and detailed picture of our presence as both individuals and communities in the public sphere. Peter Funch has established himself as a very respected contemporary art photographer. He just had his second solo exhibition at V1 Gallery in Copenhagen, and simultaneously his work is to be experienced as part of the Danish Pavilion at the World EXPO in Shanghai.
