MOSTYN, Wales UK is delighted to present the first UK solo exhibition of works by Mladen Bizumic. Taking a snapshot glance, Kodak Employed 140,000 People. Instagram 13. by Austrian-based, and New Zealand-raised, artist Mladen Bizumic focuses on the company Kodak and pictures the transition from film-based photography to digital imaging as it developed.
Through photography and sculpture Kodak Employed 140,000 People. Instagram 13. filters a timeline of Kodak's development, from its founding in 1880 to its subsequent demise in 2012 when the company filed for bankruptcy.
Kodak provides a rich source of inspiration for Bizumic. It was the medium that allowed some of his first images in the early 90s and became a go-to company over the years. The company is also significant for the artist for its shallow focus and the wider image that it is part of, which his practice has been devoted to since early 2013.
