Two artists, two techniques – a highly unusual collaborative project. The exhibition Unleashed (Musée de la Chasse, Paris, and Bonnefantenmuseum, Maastricht) brings together two very different artists: the photographer Roger Ballen, who lives in South Africa, and the Dutch draughtsman Hans Lemmen. Both share an interest in the conditio humana and in archetypal images that describe a world beyond our familiar civilisation. Unleashed shows a universe of enigmatic dreams and surreal truths, a world apparently out of time, populated by people and animals subject to forces let loose.
