The Teaser by Rut Blees Luxemburg
Text by Alexander García Düttmann
Somerset House, London
Photo London, 2015
Arranged around the public courtyard of Somerset House, 10 lightbox cubes and 10 framed lights showed photographs by Rut Blees Luxemburg that revealed an urban ‘love story’ overlayed with text by philosopher Alexander García Düttmann. On Saturday 23 May 2015, the installation became the set for a performance reading of Blees Luxemburg and García Düttmann’s collaborative publication The Academic Year, in association with SPBH Editions.
The outdoor lightboxes form part of a European outdoor art project by Procur.arte.
Rut Blees Luxemburg: The Teaser was a Photo London commission and part of the fair’s public programme.
