Peter Fischli & David Weiss: Fotografias

Peter Fischli & David Weiss: Fotografias Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fotografias ist eine fotografische Sammlung von gemalten Bildern. Sie entstand auf Reisen und Ausflügen im In- und Ausland. Die gemalten Bilder stammen von Rummelplätzen und Vergnügungsparks.
Fotografias ist ein neuer Werkkomplex einerseits, andererseits eine Weiterentwicklung von "Sichtbare Welt" - es ist zwar immer sichtbare Welt und trotzdem wird eine Welt der inneren Bilder betreten. Landschaften, Tier- und Fabelwesen, Frauenbilder, kosmische Darstellungen, Schreckensgestalten und Szenen aus der Vergangenheit, all das kommt vor.
Präsentiert werden die Fotografien, welche unterbelichtet aufgenommen und nicht nachbearbeitet worden sind, jeweils ganzseitig im Originalformat 10 x 15 cm.

Synopsis:

Photographs by Peter Fischli, David Weiss.

Synopsis:

Long before Peter Fischli and David Weiss made Fotografias, Nancy Spector had noted that the two liked to undermine conventional distinctions between high and low art. This collection of underexposed black-and-white images does exactly that, recreating low-end figurative paintings as muddy, dark, snapshots and minting them anew as fine art. Subjects include landscapes and historical scenes, animal and mythological beings, and, yes, female figures.
