Zeren Badar's Colorful Photography of Dada-Inspired Classic Art Collages
New York photographer Zeren Badar is heavily influenced by Neo-Dada. In fact, his recent series, "Accident", is directly inspired by a quote from Neo-Dada painter Jasper John. The quote, "Take an object. Do something to it. Do something else to it.", may seem simple at first, but when lent for interpretation, has resulted in these magnificent collages. Badar takes cheap prints of classical paintings and covers them with colorful found objects, like candies, ketchup packets, and even canned sardines. With these unexpected juxtapositions, he updates the Duchampian readymade, reducing the value of the formal elements of classic art and presenting them in a new light.
