Presented body of work is an exploration of authorial intervention and implied narrative. It was created in Indonesia, over the course of two months in 2014. Charles and Thomas collected a series of photographs, constructing a surrealistic world of their own.
The series contains documentary-style images, juxtaposed with photos having an intentionality of studio-based staging. It is an attemt to create a hybrid reality, composed from the documentary and fiction.
"164° On The Equator discusses exoticism through a renewed typology. This series voices the idea of a clash of civilizations. Each situation is extensively prepared, sometimes to the point that they become absurd. Fake coverage of a fake expedition, this project confronts both beauty to artifice, and exotic landscapes to the archetypes they convey,” described Charles, one of the artists.
