Objects as firends. Jos de Gruyter & Harald Thys. Mu.ZEE.

Objects as Friends” – the collaborative work of Belgian artists Jos de Gruyter & Harald Thys – consists of some 300 digital photographs of identical proportions depicting seemingly random, brightly lit assemblies of cheap, battered objects shot against a recurring gray background and standing or lying on a dust-stained floor. A tire, a stool, a rubber boot, a dismembered umbrella; many things appear broken, picked up from the street, or bought in one of those one-euro shops whose garish interior lighting is so successfully duplicated in these bleak, underwhelming stilllives. “Objects as Friends” – the collaborative work of Belgian artists Jos de Gruyter & Harald Thys – consists of some 300 digital photographs of identical proportions depicting seemingly random, brightly lit assemblies of cheap, battered objects shot against a recurring gray background and standing or lying on a dust-stained floor.
