The artist studio topoi was never new - stories about the studio practice, persona, special abilities or social standing of artists have been present in artists' biographies and autobiographies ever since Vasari's The Lives of the Most Eminent Paint­ers, Sculptors, and Architects (1550–1568). The artists' anecdotes always appear both realistic and mythical.

Painters like Courbet take the advantage of the ability to portray both - in The Painter's Studio: A real allegory summing up seven years of my artistic and moral life (L'Atelier du peintre), "the world" came to be painted at Courbet's studio. As the title suggests, the painting is open to allegorical interpretations while being realistic rather than factual itself. Besides, despite showing the creation, the artists' intention remains veiled.

When the image-making media is substituted by photography, what would be portrayed in the artist studio? Could it be able to play multiple roles other than confining a physical, constructed space? Moreover, what could the artist studio show and hide in front of the lens?

Figures
$52.00


Is this very much the artist studio you've imagined, or is it not? Lucas Blalock's photographs don't look the way the world looks; they look the way the world feels. With Figures, he trains his camera on figures both his own and numerical, arranged by chance mathematical operations.

WHAT MIGHT BE OR HAS BEEN.”

 

Phénomènes
Phénomènes
$65.00
In Phénomènes, the artist studio lies as a backdrop that functions as a constant reminder of the inauthenticity. Marina Gadonneix’s practice lies on the crossroads between reality and fiction, with her aesthetic merging landscape photography and scientific, documentary photography. The result gives an impression of a scientific discovery. 
 

 

The Untimely Apparatus of Two Amateur Photographers
The Untimely Apparatus of Two Amateur Photographers
$55.00
By hacking daily objects' original purposes, Lam Pok Yin & Chong Ng demonstrates staged performances and elaborate processes, questioning norms and presupposed ideas surrounding photography are taken to the extreme until they begin to fall apart. Taking a closer look at the apparatus the artists use, this project becomes an attempt to deconstruct and rethink the fundamental elements of photography. To a certain degree, their studio was everywhere: the park, the streets, hallways, balconies, and the living room. They captured various subjects - from wildlife to time wherever the light allows.

Replica
Replica
$50.00
American mid-century photographer William Mortensen once suggests that a body is simply considered to be “a machine that needs adjustments.” There is a certain dehumanization in Mortensen’s approach to the model, a return of the body to an object without meaning, in front of the camera. 

In Rita Lino’s case she is the model, the operator / photographer, the subject and the image at the same time. She is in complete control. She becomes a self-subject that functions under machine will with precision. She produces herself as the image, free from any outside influences to bend to the society's will in performing identity. 

 



Wood Bone Mill
Wood Bone Mill
$25.00
Wood Bone Mill, Matty Davis. 2019.
 
Wood Bone Mill is a performance created by Matty Davis and Bryan Saner. It was presented under and within the limbs of a mulberry tree in Bryan's yard in the Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer between 2017 and 2018. Moving through and responding to the seasons, Wood Bone Mill embodied an evolving meditation on aging, risk, trust, and community.
 
Wood Bone Mill annotated artist edition, Matty Davis. 2020.  
 
In addition to serving as a record of the performance, the publication contains an intermittent dialogue between the designers and the artist about the decisions made in its production. Wood Bone Mill did not take place in an isolated, confined indoor studio, but en plein air - both in the sense of its locality and involvement.

Erwin Wurm - Photographs
Erwin Wurm - Photographs
$75.00
Erwin Wurm holds his intention behind the simple gestures and daily objects presented before the lens. As a matter of fact, Wurm produces not only photography - among his oeuvre, One Minute Sculpture took the instructive form in a kind of Sol Lewitt fashion, guiding the performer on how exactly to pose for one minute. This work of sculptural photography speaks strong about Wurm's interests in the everyday life, humorous expressions, and perhaps the desire to either emphasize or deduce the underlying meaning through the way we interact with our surroundings in general - human or nonhuman. 
 



Équivalences
Équivalences
$55.00
Douglas Mandry's photographic practice is entirely developed on his interest in how analogue processes can augment, question, eventually break the reality. Inspired by 20th century postcards' hand-colored, commercialized representations of the (or certain) landscapes, Équivalences brings mountains and plateaus out of imagination and veils their true appearances, repeatedly and consistently until they are no longer recognizable - and perhaps don't matter anymore.
