UNDERCOVER BY NICK KLINE curated by Ute Noll

Artist Statement by Nick Kline

The images from the „Undercover“, 2005, series were made by visiting dry cleaning shops where I would select clothes hanging in storage. The personality that a garment suggests is often the first impulse to make a photograph. The title „Undercover“ is ambiguous like the images, on one hand its alludes to something „official“. I am also interested in how a sense of dread and discomfort can emerge from something familiar literally being „covered“.
