Wolfgang Tillmans Lighter

EPUB EBook by Wolfgang Tillmans

EBook Description

Since winning the Turner Prize in 2000 for his 1990s oeuvre of portraits and snapshots, German- EPUBborn photographer Wolfgang Tillmans has increasingly gravitated towards the abstract and material-specific properties of his medium. Wolfgang Tillmans Lighter EPUB EBook Following "Blushes," the "Freischwimmer" series and the monochromatic "Silver" series, his most recent abstract works—of which the creased and folded "Lighter" series is perhaps the most significant—treat the photograph, and especially photographic paper itself, no longer as a reproductive medium, but as a material object. In Tillmans' "paper drop" photographs, the paper's physical folds and curves are photographed to produce geometric, tactile compositions. Other works oscillate more elusively between photograph and object, always thriving in the interplay. "For me, the abstract picture is already objective because it's a concrete object and represents itself," Tillmans observes; download; "the paper on which the picture is printed is for me an object, there is no separating the picture from that which carries it. That's why I like to show photographs sometimes framed and sometimes not, just taped to the wall." These most recent works are gathered for the first time in this book. "Lighter" also includes an extensive section of installation views—taken by Tillmans himself—that offers the reader a direct experience of the artist's visual cosmos as presented in recent exhibitions, including his last retrospective, which was seen at various major venues in the United States.
