Pausing Virtual Images
Photography | 798 Photo Gallery, Beijing, China | Saturday 14 July 2012 - Saturday 18 August 2012
In our time, the continuous storming of digital technology has rendered the traditional ways of understanding and experiencing art obsolete. At such a juncture, what does the ubiquitous presence of digitalized virtual reality imply for what used to be held as the truth and the essence of art? How should we comprehend the changes brought about by the rise of a virtual world? Furthermore, facing such changes, how should we reassess the traditional definitions of art? I believe that the recent works of Sun Lue-these digital static frame images in this exhibition-may help us think about such questions.

The exhibition at CAMERA WORK shows works from the photographic oeuvre of Ralph Gibson that have been created over a period of 40 years – from the mystic-surrealistic photographs taken from the world-famous series »The Somnambulist« and works from his series »Deja-Vu« and »Days at Sea« to his recent nudes. Within Ralph Gibson’s body of work, the connecting characteristics of his visual concepts are a pronounced use of powerful black and white contrasts and a distinguishing graininess of the silver gelatine prints. The diversity of motives and subjects does not dampen the mysterious aura inherent in the photographs, blurring the lines between realism, surrealism, expressionism and metaphysic imagery.

Rosenquist began the painting F-111 in 1964, in the middle of the Vietnam War. He positioned his main subject, the F-111 military plane, which was in development at the time, flying through fragmented images of consumer products and references to war. Through its expansive network of colliding visual motifs, F-111 addresses the connections between the Vietnam War, income taxes, consumerism, and advertising.
