Elad Lassry

What is the philosophical location of a picture? Working with images culled from textbooks, manuals, advertising, films, illustrated magazines, and commercial catalogues, Lassry lifts them out of their original contexts, alters them, and radically destabilizes their function. He not only points to the processes of photographic production and reproduction (underscoring the idea that a picture de facto relates to other pictures), but also to the material attributes of the picture as an object. In his rigorously formatted photographs, which never exceed the dimensions of a magazine page or spread, Lassry elaborates on the potential of a photograph to exist as a sculpture.
