  • Press release

    For its last show in the gallery space on Prinsengracht, Martin van Zomeren is pleased to present ‘Folded Variations’, a recent body of works of Katja Mater.

    For the series ‘Folded Variations’, several copies of the same photographic print were repeatedly folded, transforming them from three-dimensional objects into flat surfaces and back again. When folded, the prints showed new, but reasonably consistent, images.
    The images on the prints consist of multiple exposures on a single negative, showing the process of painting a paper object.
