PIET OOSTERBEEK - EVERYTHING OK NOT OK
Opening on Friday January 10th is Everything OK Not OK, an exhibition by frequent Patta collaborator Piet Oosterbeek, at Melkweg Expo in Amsterdam. In Everything OK not OK, Piet Oosterbeek sketches a twofold story about young people in Tbilisi, Georgia and examines how we interpret images from a Western perspective. By looking at others and observing their lives, we reflect on ourselves and the context in which we live. For this series, Oosterbeek photographed young people dressed in everyday street style in their urban environment. Pink hair, a man with an earring, tattoos, a woman with a cigarette and a nose ring; the images are reminiscent of a typical Western European street scene.
