Installation

Photography

Niko Lee Gail Demoed and Joppe Blonk work as a duo on installations with photography as their main focus. They conduct research into the relationship between eroticism, pop culture and consumerism. In the installation ‘Toxic’, eroticism is again and again to be found in their representations of consuming man, printed on car parts and advertising lights.
