The Accident Series by Zeren Badar

The Artist from New York Combines Still-Life Photography with Elements of Dada

Posted by Gestalten—03/2016

By arranging objects such as pearls, rubber bands, and even raw eggs atop photographs, New York-based artist Zeren Badar creates layered collages with depth and dimensionality. Drawing equally from Dada influences and Duchampian ideals, the Badar’s work is full of unexpected juxtapositions that pair the new with the old, and the classic with the contemporary. The result is a stunning array of collages that, as Badar says himself, “examine a new type of still life”.
