On the occasion of the Unseen City Programme, talented artist Vermibus will have his first spotlight show at the In4Art project space in Amsterdam. He will share his notion on advertising mental pollution while re-engineering photography. Vermibus himself will give you guided tour through the exhibition - In Absentia.

For the past five years, Vermibus has been developing his practice of appropriation and revelation intensively. He is opposing the unrealistic beauty paradigm and provides an alternative outlook.

Characteristic​ of Vermibus work can be seen in how he is exploring the issues of identity, consumerism and imposed beauty standards. Vermibus’ creative process includes collecting and appropriation of public advertising posters​ which he intervenes upon, followed by reinstalling them to their original or approximate location in public. He hunts for fashion ads featuring beautiful, but fake models.

Born in 1987 in Palma de Mallorca, Vermibus currently lives and works in Berlin, Germany. His most notable ad busting series are “Unmasking Kate”, “Dissolving Europe”, and most recently, “Unveiling Beauty” with interventions conducted in New York, Paris, London and Milan.

During the artist talk, In4Art founder Lija Groenewoud van Vliet will interview Vermibus. After the artist talk there will be drinks and time for more Q&A.
