A nice little blurb about our participation at Aipad 2018
Making its debut at AIPAD, Copenhagen’s In the Gallery brought with it the impressionistic work of Danish photographer Jacob Gils. For these pieces, Gils made a series of exposures from different vantage points, superimposing one picture on top of another until each work’s subject—a tree in one, a Santa Monica beach house in another—appears to dissolve. “I used to be a fashion photographer 15 years ago, and when I was shooting fashion everything was perfect: perfect models, the perfect places, [a lot of] Photoshop[ping],” Gils said. “So when I started to make my art, I wanted something that wasn’t perfect.” The gallery said that Gils’s photograph Santa Monica #1 (2017) had been put on reserve before the fair opened, but declined to give its price. A larger version was available for $48,000. Copenhagen #21, a smaller work, had sold before the fair opened for about $2,200.
