Oliver Laric’s Holograms
Oliver Laric’s shimmering compositions are made from thousands of hologram sticker PET sheets — the same reflective material used as a security measure on bank notes and credit cards. More than a thing of beauty, however, Leric’s work makes inumerable reference to issues of production, authenticity, and world markets. As the Tania Leighton Gallery in Berlin explains: 
“Commissioned by the artist, these holograms were produced in the thousands by factories in Shenzhen, China, a region renowned for the manufacturing and production of both official and bootleg goods. The hologram stickers contain imagery in the decorative Guilloche style, commonly used to convey originality when authenticating products, visa documents, certificates and paper money. The holograms also contain depictions of artworks and symbols that have been made widely familiar through excessive reproduction and mediation, such as Rodin’s ‘The Thinker’, the Ancient Greek statue ‘Discobolous’, or Janus - the two-faced Roman God of beginnings and transitions.”
