„Slagman’s installation of new colour photographs focus on his
brother a teenager suffering from scoliosis of the spine. In these
photographs the subject turns his back to the camera while
Slagman records the anatomical distortion with a tender
detachment. His images are ’framed’ on the wall by a simple
device a single arrow that penetrate both the photograph and
the wall itself.
Elsewhere a single arrow hovers, rotating slowly in space and a
photogram, made by exposing light through a plastic medical
corset, is strung on the string of a bow. These motifs recalls the
childhood sport of archery and the search for unattainable
perfection.“ - Oliver Chanarin
