Interview Germany, April 2012
…It looks like people are trying to extend the sense of what permits a something to be seen as a picture— that is, with an ambition to matter in terms of proposing what a picture is at its most significant level. Younger artists seem to be testing out this dialectic of higher and lower genres. The engagement with what have often been seen as trivial and compromised studio types— like the still life that started out as a commercial product photograph— seem to have to do with finding those little voids in the canon that can still disturb the consensus of what is worth bothering to photograph in the first place.
