The work of rising artist Tadao Cern represents an innovative approach to photography as well as a dash of freshness when it comes to the established media of installation. It can be said that the artist is in general interested in the states of passivity and activity. Whilst Cern’s photographic narratives rotate around lively and exaggerated depictions, his installments suggest order, simplicity, and calmness. Obviously, before mentioned principles prevail throughout the works, but are framed with a certain ambiguity and irony. Another important aspect seems to be the matter of the forms and how do we perceive and insert the meaning in them.
