OFF-SHOOT: Serial Explorations Group Exhibition
21c Museum
November 2012 – June 2013

Art in Metropole: Serial explorations of subject, form, and media has been a hallmark of modern artistic practice since the advent of photography in the mid-19th century.

Louisville-based Sarah Lyon engages in a literal and conceptual interrogation of photography in her Camera Collection, a series of portraits of cameras. Invoking Marcel Duchamp’s legacy of adopting found objects into art—his famed readymades—Lyon transforms instrument into concept, object into subject, and reverses the standard trajectory of the viewer’s gaze. Varying in make, model, or size, the cameras face the viewer, trading places, and, powerless to perform their usual function, instead illustrate repetition and variety, while alluding to the narcissism that drives the desire to be seen, to be documented, to be an image—desires thwarted by Lyon’s collective object-portrait. – Curator Alice Stites
