Lisson Gallery with Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin Presents Rudiments

Within the frame of Artissima’s Present Future section, London-based artists Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin are presenting their 2015 video entitled Rudiments with Lisson Gallery, where they just recently had their solo show. One of the most interesting aspects in the collaborative works of these two photographers is their rather interesting approach to photojournalism and the way they manage to tackle some serious social issues with a dose of refreshing humor.

 

The Rudiments video installation documents the routine practice in a Liverpool military camp for young cadets. To discover the details of this work, the inspiration behind it and the social topics Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin are exploring in this video, take a listen to this short interview.
