Urban Zoom is a solo exhibition by contemporary artist and photographer David Molander. The exhibition presents a series of hyperrealist works that go beyond the surreal and expressionistic to depict contemporary urban and social landscapes, including events related to the Occupy Wall Street Movement in September 2011 through a site-specific photographic installation on the Acconci/Holl façade. The works depict various urban landscapes in New York and Stockholm: an accident on the Lower East Side, the loneliness of the Gowanus Canal, the psychedelic view of a nightclub in Stockholm. By manipulating the images through enlargement, cropping, dissection and zooming, Molander guides the visitor through a metropolitan journey, offering new perspectives of the urban environment.
