Peter Fischli & David Weiss: Fotografias
Photographs by Peter Fischli, David Weiss.
Long before Peter Fischli and David Weiss made Fotografias, Nancy Spector had noted that the two liked to "undermine conventional distinctions between high and low art." This collection of underexposed black-and-white images does exactly that, recreating low-end figurative paintings as muddy, dark, snapshots and minting them anew as fine art. Subjects include landscapes and historical scenes, animal and mythological beings, and, yes, female figures.
