Foam proudly presents The Following is a True Story, an exhibition of the work of Romain Mader (1988, Switzerland). Mader was chosen by an international jury as the winner of the Foam Paul Huf Award 2017. Mader plays with the tension between reality and fiction. His work stands out for the humour and irony with which he addresses serious topics such as loneliness, love, exploitation and the female body. Beneath the seeming superficiality of his images, his work contains many layers that can be interpreted in various ways.
Foam is supported by the BankGiro Loterij, De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek, City of Amsterdam, Delta Lloyd, Olympus and the VandenEnde Foundation.
