In her photographs, Alex Grein breaks with familiar patterns of perception and unsettles the relationship between reality and virtual reality. In her ongoing series “Pictures on a Screen”, Grein displays pre-selected photographs on her smartphone screen and combines them with physical miniatures of everyday objects. By photographing the ensemble, she transfers the two components onto a common level, deliberately allowing ‚erroneous’ glitches to appear that allude to the construction of her images.
