NGCA piece within NGC Collections Gallery
Dusseldorf-based Ralf Broeg is an artist whose work makes us look closely at ordinary parts of the world we take for granted. His series ‘Zero RPM Records’ are strange, hybrid objects – digital prints that pay homage to the power of vinyl records as a medium of storing sound. They are terse, graphic, abstract, images that are copies of phonographic records. Broeg takes a piece of vintage vinyl only to colour it with wax, digitally scan the object, then reprint it as an object with a peculiar power and beauty. Broeg is a Senior Lecturer in Fine Art at The University of Sunderland.
