Announcing the Fall 2015 ARTBOOK | D.A.P. Catalogue
Before you delve into our new catalogue, take another look at Barbara Kasten's "Construct NYC-4" (1983), reproduced on the front cover from JRP | Ringier's excellent monograph accompanying her exhibition at ICA Philadelphia. Glanced at quickly, this image might seem to be a digital manipulation. But it's not; it's "real." Kasten's working process combines sculpture (she constructs three-dimensional "stage-sets"), performance (she physically moves within and around her props and lights them theatrically) and photography (she sets up her camera to frame a particular two-dimensional image). The resulting "reality" that Kasten shows us is the product of an individual act of seeing. As Andy Grundberg has eloquently written, "the photographs remind us that what we see depends on how we choose to see it."
