Self Absorption and Theatricality in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction

Jimmy Limit, Kyle Tryhorn, Ryan Foerster, Bruce LaBruce, Davida Nemeroff, Marc Couroux


Self Absorption and Theatricality addresses tendencies in landscape, still life and social photography within a culture of instantaneous archive. The urban mundane has reached archetypal status. And this does not inhibit artists from innovating on a level of the iconic image, and choosing to meet the criteria of an aesthetic rather than the essence of the unique authorial style. Randomness, spontaneity, and the candid snap, are intertwined in this rumination on works that involve obsessive social scenarios and surprising takes on landscape.
