Elias Wessel at ISCP in New York


Elias Wessel employs photography to create images and multidisciplinary projects that reflect contemporary societal discourses. His works contribute to discussions about sociological and political development and the historical dialogue between photography and painting, exploring topics such as digitalization and questions of identity.

The SpallArt Collection supports Elias Wessel and financed part of his residency at the ISCP in New York, where his latest work deals with forms based on measurement fields of facial recognition systems.

The International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) supports the creative development of artists and curators, and promotes exchange through residencies and public programs. Housed in a former factory in Brooklyn, with 35 light-filled work studios and two galleries, ISCP is New York’s most comprehensive international visual arts residency program, founded in 1994. ISCP organizes exhibitions, events and offsite projects, which are free and open to all, sustaining a vibrant community of contemporary art practitioners and diverse audiences. Over 1,800 artists and curators from more than 90 countries have undertaken residencies at ISCP.
