PRIMARY INFORMATION

Elad Lassry: On Onions

Published by Primary Information
Text by Angie Keefer.

Featured image is reproduced from <I>Elad Lassry: On Onions</I>.On Onions is a photographic study of onions by Israeli-born artist Elad Lassry (born 1977). Characteristically highlighting the spectrum of hues and shapes for the vegetable, Lassry’s selected taxonomy includes sections on red, yellow and white onions, each of which possesses its own distinct taste and benefits. On Onions is Lassry’s first artist’s book, and the work will exist only in book form; it is at once wry, refreshing and disorienting in its biology workbook style, which makes fruitful use of “the confusion that results when there is something just slightly wrong in a photograph” (as the artist has described his practice in general). Composed by the artist and arranged by Stuart Bailey, the book includes an essay written by Angie Keefer about the effects of sliced onions on human tear ducts.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Art in America

Editors

Artist Book of the Year; This photographic study mixes pictures of the allium in its many forms—red, Spanish, white, scallion—with eerily similar images of contact lenses, prosthetic eyes and X-rays of retinas. Artist Angie Keefer supplies short texts interspersed throughout the book, examining not only onions but also Euripedes, the term "lacrimal" and the act of crying, described by Keefer as "ongoing, automatic, silent, and possibly worth dwelling on in those moments when you feel like you can't do anything right."
