TenFifteen is an installation that offer an impression of the complete work of Dekker. All photos in the installation measure ten by fifteen centimeters, hence the name: ‘TenFifteen’.
The thousands of black and white photos, side by side, reflect the countless pictures we come across every day. The medium photography is used by many to let others peek into their daily experiences. It is fascinating how the private and intimate becomes public and exposed.
By enlarging this habit, he celebrates this openness of people, while at the same time aiming at awareness of this use. While looking at any art, people not rarely develop an opinion. In this case, it would be interesting to compare one’s view on the installation to his own identity on social media. How can you relate to all these photos that are in front of you?
Be overwhelmed, either in a gallery, at an art fair, looking at hotel ceilings, during festivals, or… in the toilet.
