Still Fantasy is a kaleidoscopic refraction of images. Kirkeby presents us with a range of image types as seen through the extended eye, accessing a state of intimate reality riddled with meaning. X-rays, objects turned into patterns, machines, signs and urban sites all create a sense and narrative of a place that elucidates something revelatory.

Kirkeby employs digitally manipulated photography across a multitude of genres to engage the quotidian with a surreal and dreamlike gaze, evoking artificial experiences through means of mediation and abstraction. The work highlights themes on the opacity and complex experience of life today, offering subtle comments on contemporary society.
