frieze magazine

Issue 143

Nov - Dec 2011

In the Nov / Dec issue of frieze associate editor Christy Lange describes how ‘a photograph—for all its apparent or intrinsic stillness, two-dimensionality and documentary properties—can also give still things life.’

Elad Lassry discusses his sculptures that ‘happen to be photographs’ with curator Mark Godfrey, articulating the relationship between objects, the importance of the frame and the potential of ‘nervous pictures’.

Artist, writer and curator Chris Wiley looks at new approaches to photography in the work of a number of US-based artists, including Michele Abeles, Lucas Blalock, Talia Cherit, Liz Deschenes and Sam Falls, emphasizing process, digital manipulation and the physical support. Plus writer and curator David Campany traces the intertwining of art and commercial photography in the genre of still life.
