Lot Details

Framed under glass in a walnut wood frame by artist, 14.5 x 11.5 x 1.5 inches (36.8 x 29.2 x 3.8 cm).

Elad Lassry makes sculptures that, in his words, ‘happen to be photographs’.

"Everything I photograph is a display, shot straight-on in a way that flattens it out. So the surfaces of all these three-dimensional objects and their pedestals are collapsed into a flat plane that suggests a monolith or a monochrome. Similarly, when you enter the exhibition space, you first just see the lines of the works’ frames. The photographs have to open up as you walk through the space. So the image unfolds in a very analogue sense and it’s that experience that I’m interested in – making the viewer re-experience the work as an object that sneaks up on you as an image."
-Elad Lassry (Frieze Magazine)
