Wolfgang Tillmans: Abstract Pictures

Published by Hatje Cantz
Text by Dominic Eichler, Wolfgang Tillmans.

"Strings of Life" (1999) is reproduced from <I>Wolfgang Tillmans: Abstract Pictures</i>.From the start, Wolfgang Tillmans' (born 1968) abstract photographs played a decisive role in his gentle subversion of photographic hierarchies and his seductive emphasis on the materiality of photographic objects in his presentation of them. In the past decade he has pursued this tack, making wholly non-representational photographs that explore processes of exposure. From the delicate veils of color in the Blushes and Freischwimmer series, and the sculptural paper drops made of folded or rolled-up photographic paper, to the colorfully compelling works of the Lighter series, the printed object itself, divorced from its reproductive function, is always the point. "For me, the abstract picture is already objective because it's a concrete object and represents itself," Tillmans says; "the paper on which the picture is printed is for me an object, there is no separating the picture from that which carries it. That's why I like to show photographs sometimes framed and sometimes not, just taped to the wall." Designed by the photographer, and with 275 color reproductions of these works, Abstract Pictures--now in paperback--impressively demonstrates how fruitfully Tillmans has mined this terrain.

"Strings of Life" (1999) is reproduced from Wolfgang Tillmans: Abstract Pictures.

Wolfgang Tillmans: Abstract Pictures

NOW IN PAPERBACK! Wolfgang Tillmans: Abstract Pictures"The underpinning of my work has always been the use of the photographic medium and everything it offers in order to make a new picture," Wolfgang Tillmans is quoted in Hatje Cantz's new paperback edition of the classic compendium, Abstract Pictures. "That is the only thing that I feel responsible for. I believe that all times and every historical situation allows for the making of new things and demands a new response. These might be progressions of what has been going on before but there has to be something that is specific about the contemporary condition. If that is with or without the camera is ultimately not so relevant to me because all my work comes from a sense of curiosity and enquiry and experimentation. I use the word experimentation freely, even though I always shun it when it is used in relation to my abstract pictures. I have observed that as soon as the work is abstract, 'experimentation' automatically comes up. But for me every portrait sitting and every cityscape is just as much an experiment." continue to blog
