We are pleased to announce our participation in this year's artgenève as part of the curated exhibition 'artgenève/photography'. Chiara Agradi, the curator of the photography exhibition at this fair, has selected British artist Miles Aldridge, among others, for this special section. On display is an exciting collection of silkscreen prints and Polaroids.

‘I think that a fictional mise-en-scène can be more truthful than documenting reality, especially in an age of fake news.’

– Miles Aldridge, 2019

The works on view focus on the artists’ recent exploration of the medium of screenprinting as a new way of depicting his photographic images. Aldridge’s hyper-coloured work is well known for its cinematic depictions of the strange and surreal in modern life. In this exhibition, Aldridge’s vernacular of noir beauty is further emphasized through the screenprinting process, which allows a new heightened colour, as well as a print texture nostalgically reminiscent of pin-up magazines and pulp fiction book covers.

Aldridge proposes: ‘Nowadays anybody can take a decent enough photograph so what does the medium mean today?' The works on view invite you to immerse in Miles Aldridge’s mediums of Polaroid studies and printing techniques. Each image is meticulously crafted to create his vivid dream-like world, lying between cinema, photography and art where his images tell a story much wider than their frame.

‘Miles sees a colour-coordinated, graphically pure, hard-edged reality.’
- David Lynch
