Renée Ridgway // The Revelation of the Concealed

Politics (in)form: Freedom of Information Act results
Out of stock

Artist Renée Ridgway searched the archives of Buro Jansen & Janssen, an investigation agency that critically follows the police, judiciary and intelligence services and uses the WOB as one of its research tools. Taking a critical stance on governmental policies and actions, Ridgway selected various files to be turned into readymades of political aesthetics. These A4s are palimpsest, remnant texts merging into newly created and visually poetic images. This project pragmatically explores the actual conduct of these redacted documents.
