Dunja Evers
b. 1963 (Hamburg, DE), lives and works in Duesseldorf, DE

For the past few years Dunja Evers has found her source material in visual archives. Her previous works have involved reshaping blurred images of events, such as the first moon landing or the conquering of the American West. However, in Chamber of Horrors we immediately recognize 1960s and ’70s cinema as the inspiration. Evers acquires original prints from cinema showcases, through exchanges and the Internet; she then works on the surface of these prints with coloured pigments.
