You Are Looking at Something That Never Occurred / £38.00
Produced to coincide with the exhibition You Are Looking at Something That Never Occurred, Zabludowicz Collection, London, 30 March – 9 July 2017.
You Are Looking at Something That Never Occurred brings together 14 international artists who work with photography. It spans a 40-year period, from 1977 to the present day, and traces how artists have used the camera to blur boundaries between past and present, fact and fiction.
Today, the photographic image feels ever-present, perhaps even over-familiar. How then do artists go about producing works that can engage us? In this exhibition the recognisable world of images is used as a starting point. The languages of the personal snapshot, advertising and cinema are reworked to produce new pictures.
The book includes texts by the exhibition’s curator Paul Luckraft, a discussion hosted by Chris Wiley, with Lucas Blalock, Sara Cwynar and Erin Shirreff and an essay by David Campany.
