Kevin Abosch (born 1969) is an Irish conceptual artist known for his works in photography, sculpture, installation, AI, blockchain and film. Abosch‘s work addresses the nature of identity and value by posing ontological questions and responding to sociologic dilemmas. He lives and work in Paris.
Nagel Draxler presents a solo exhibition by Irish artist Kevin Abosch. Working with machine learning algorithms (AI) and models trained on large datasets of photographs, Kevin Abosch‘s synthetic photographs are notable for the corruptions in his images forced by subverting the algorithms. Abosch believes that these visual corruptions reveal complex truths and help in unlocking emotional value. These works are released in print editions. Abosch is interested in the ways in which traditional and synthetic photographic methods complement and inform each other. Print sizes can vary on request.
