Rotterdam-based photographer

01.04.2017   - 30.04.2017

Rotterdam-based photographer Ari Versluis is known for his Exactitudes photo series, made in collaboration with Ellie Uyttenbroek, which examines the construction of social identity by way of fashion codes.

In his commissions and solo work Encounters he aims to blur the boundaries between social and artistic experiment, the images documenting personal narratives between the photographer and the portrayed, viewed as self-expressing individuals representing a new kind of super-diversity.

The Exactitudes were presented at SomoS’ first Alter Angle exhibition, 2013.

As part of the 2014 Berlin Fashion Week, SomoS presented the Encounters, as part of Alter Angle #3.

A second “Kreuzkölln Encounter” installment was produced by Ari Versluis during his April 2017 artist residency at SomoS.
