After photographing metropolises such as Tokyo, Sao Paolo, Cairo, Paris and Mexico City, Aglaia Konrad manipulates these images by mirroring, enlarging, collaging and copying them. In her two- and three-dimensional installations she not only plays with the phenomena and the representation of the city but also toys with questions concerning ambiguity, identity, and perception.

An ambitious and substantial tome, ‘Elasticity’ offers insight into the characteristics and images of the metropolis. In Konrad's highly individual image manipulations, a fascinating topography of urban fabrics, facades, infrastructure, architectural forms, and surfaces is revealed. This 248-page visual essay presents her personal photographic archive “installed” in book form in a unique sequence and rhythm. The book also offers a reflection on Konrad's work through four essays.
