Portable Monuments

Extra

London-based artists Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin have used simple coloured blocks as signifiers in a series of photographs that reflect war imagery found in popular media titled Portable Monuments.

Replacing real-life tragedies with inanimate blocks, the duo aim to highlight the sterilisation of war that occurs through contemporary photography. The vibrant, playful hues used in the imagery add to this abstraction, emphasising how colour can imply emotion.

Portable Monuments runs until February 18 2012 at Galerie Gabriel Rolt in Amsterdam.
