AMSTERDAM.- Linus Bill (Switzerland, 1982), takes photographs and assembles them into a new world that is similar to ours but where regular rules do not apply. He photographs everything, all the time: people he knows, people he doesn’t know, interiors, exteriors, living things, objects, snapshots, posed scenes; anything. Through his lens colour and form are not static. Subjects are changed in scale or form and transformed into new images. Especially for Foam, Bill creates an exhibition that covers all the walls of the museum. That is, he presents all his photos and sculptures in a scale model of the museum and exhibits it in Foam-3H, the exhibition space for young talent.

This model ‘The Greatest Hits Vol. 1’ is presented in Foam to a scale of 1:10. In this dummy all artworks are produced within scale containing sculptures and a series of about twenty photographs. The sculptures are clay models and are presented as three-dimensional abstract paintings. His photo’s all have a mysterious character and an often-indefinable origin in common. New and often abstract works are complemented with older works, which gives the viewer a renewed insight into his current works.

Linus Bill studied photography at the Zürich University of the Arts. Between 2004 and 2010 he took part in several group- and solo exhibitions in Berlin, Zurich, Hamburg, Stockholm, Vienna and New York. In 2009 he won the Grand Prix Du Jury of the Festival International de Photographie Hyères. Bill also created several publications,e.g. Polizei Geschlossen Sorry, Rollo Press, Zürich 2008 and Tu M‘as Volé Mon Vélo, Rollo Press, Zürich 2008.
