Short Statement
Adam de Neige´s archeology of the present examines the usual perception of seemingly everyday actions and items. His objects and visual material of different techniques aim to control the way we see them. In a kind of self-censorship, they reduce their color scheme or visual field – yet their protagonists to still lifes.
