A Matter of Memory: Photography as Object in the Digital Age (group)
opening : October 21, 6pm
The majority of photographic images today are recorded and viewed digitally, rather than on film and paper. Amateurs, photojournalists and commercial photographers alike rarely produce material objects as the final step in their photographic process, making photographs in the form of physical objects increasingly scarce.
But what happens to personal and collective memories when photographic images are not instantly accessible on the face of physical objects? How is society’s relationship to memory changing as digital photographs become the norm?
A number of contemporary artists are making work that suggests the potential consequences of photography’s latest metamorphosis. Two main strategies emerge: some artists dig deep into photographic materials as though searching for the locus of memory, and others incorporate found photographs into their work as virtual talismans of recollection. Both highlight the presence of the photographic object and function as self-conscious meditations on photography’s ongoing reorganization of our mental and physical landscape.
A Matter of Memory features the work of more than 30 artists including Thomas Barrow, Matthew Brandt, Ellen Carey, John Chiara, Adam Fuss, Robert Heinecken, Leslie Hewitt, Kenneth Josephson, Laura Letinsky, Lilly Lulay, Chris McCaw, Diane Meyer, Yola Monakhov Stockton, Vik Muniz, Floris Neusüss, Marlo Pascual, Matthew Porter, Taryn Simon, Michelle Stuart, Kunié Sugiura, Bertien van Manen, James Welling and Augusta Wood.

Mindscapes, Lilly Lulay
Revolver publishing, Berlin, 2016
Lilly Lulay’s Mindscapes series, begun in 2007 and still ongoing, is made exclusively using found photographs sourced from different places and times. Cropped and recombined by the artist, these images that once have belonged to others became abstract compositions, scenes of an inner world of memory and imagination to which no camera has access: Mindscapes. If seen from a certain distance, the collages recall subjects such as mountains, panoramas, urban buildings, whereas from closer up they reveal a plethora of fragments: small portions of reality that others have voluntarily framed or included casually in their photographs, shot and then sold, abandoned or lost.
For the publication original sized reproductions of the Mindscapes are accompanied by full format pages with blown-up images. These render visible haptic aspects of the original collages: relief structures and the materiality of papers used, scratches, dust and remains of glue.
Lilly Lulay’s Mindscapes—all works are unique pieces—had been shown in various group and solo shows in France, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, the Netherlands and the US. The publication is the first one to date, which puts together works from the past eight years with essays from four different authors (one English, one French, two German), each of them offering an individual viewpoint on the series.

Contemporary Photography from North-Western Europe
Skira, Milano 2015, Fondazione Fotografia di Modena
Fondazione Fotografia presents the latest volume in the series dedicated to the international collection of the Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Modena. The selection – more than seventy works by a total of nineteen artists – bears witness to the vibrancy of the current trends in a geographical area that encompasses Germany, the United Kingdom and Scandinavia, taking in works of photographers of different generations: from well-known names such as Wolfgang Tillmans, Gillian Wearing, Barbara Probst, Olivier Richon and Sarah Jones, to up-and-coming talents including Jonny Briggs, Lilly Lulay and Johann Arens, whose works suggest new possible identities for photography.

"Sous le commissariat de Sophie Bernard, la sélection réunit des photographes et des artistes, mais également des éditeurs et collectionneurs. À partir de corpus d’images anciennes, négatifs ou tirages, ils font œuvre et établissent d’autres rapports au visible. Détachés d’un pathos matérialiste qui viendrait sacraliser ces images primaires oubliées ou tombées dans l’anonymat, ils reconsidèrent les qualités de ces matériaux, vieillis et un peu sales pour les recycler, les détourner et les hybrider.
Les œuvres abordent des questions de transmission, de mutation, d’identité et s’inscrivent dans les enjeux contemporains de la fabrique de l’image. Dans une pluralité de formes (œuvres tableaux, tirages uniques, objets photographiques, multiples, éditions et livres d’artistes), elles proposent des modes de résistance à l’obsolescence programmée qui régit nos vies"

“From a sketch aesthetic to prints of engravings, from modeling of space to synthesis image, the selection of works reflects the porosity of the borders in the photo-graphic domain, the photograph in the sense of a drawing/design of the light.“
