Janet Sternburg Talk and Signing at Hauser Wirth & Schimmel

Saturday, December 10, 11:30 AM, join ARTBOOK and Hauser Wirth & Schimmel for a talk and book signing with artist Janet Sternburg, whose new monograph ‘Overspilling World’ showcases nearly two decades of work by the author and photographer. The book also includes texts by art historian Pepe Karmel, photographer Catherine Opie, curator Alexandra von Stosch, and filmmaker-photographer Wim Wenders.

Janet Sternburg Talk and Signing at Hauser Wirth & Schimmel

As Wenders notes in his foreword, ‘Photographers don’t have eyes in the back of their heads. Janet Sternburg does. This book makes you understand the act of seeing and the reflection that might lead to a photograph in a whole new way.’

‘Overspilling World’ documents the artist’s philosophy of seeing and exploration of the boundaries of perception, revealing how photography can render the complex imagery that our mind creates. Working without any digital or optical manipulation, Sternburg employs disposable cameras and early iPhone cameras to take her photographs. She utilizes their technical limitations to portray the conflations of time and space present in a single moment, what French philosopher Maurice Merleau-Ponty calls ‘an over-spilling world.’ Sternburg’s works are images of consciousness—its fluidity and porosity—fused with everyday life.

‘Overspilling World’ traces the artist’s development as an established writer who first picked up a disposable camera in 1998 while staying in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Sternburg’s later beginnings as a photographer have given her freedom from conventions. Often shooting through windows, she uses reflection not to mirror but rather to blur conventional separations between inside and outside, solid and fluid, subject and object, as seen in her early work ‘Splendor’ (1999). In images like ‘Siren’ (2011), the abstraction of shapes and colors give the works a painterly quality. Above all, Sternburg’s work conveys her revelation of seeing and the ever-changing movement of mind and experience.

About the Artist Janet Sternburg (b. Boston MA, 1943) lives and works in Los Angeles CA and San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. She has exhibited her work internationally including solo shows in Berlin, Korea, Mexico, New York, and Los Angeles. Sternburg’s photographs have appeared in extensive portfolios in ‘Aperture,’ ‘Art Journal,’ and ‘The Behavior of Light,’ the catalogue that accompanied the American Embassy-sponsored tour of her work throughout Germany. Her work is also included in major private collections and the permanent collection of the USC Fisher Museum of Art, Los Angeles CA. Upcoming solo exhibitions will be shown at Contrasto Galleria, Milan, Italy, in spring 2017, and the USC Fisher Museum of Art in September 2018.

She is also the author of such books as the iconic ‘The Writer On Her Work’ and, most recently, ‘White Matter: A Memoir of Family and Medicine.’ In her essay for ‘Overspilling World,’ she writes of the connections between her images and her words.

‘Janet Sternburg: Overspilling World’ will be available at the book signing for purchase from ARTBOOK @ Hauser Wirth & Schimmel. This event is free but reservations are required. Click here to reserve a place.
