Review: John Gossage at Fraenkel Gallery

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, August 12, 2014
Who Do You Love

Through August 23

Who Do You Love is a carefully selected group of 12 never-before-been-seen collages by John Gossage.  They are playful and thrilling, dynamic and graphic.  Gossage made this photo-driven work in the 1990's in tandem with his more direct photographic practice.  This selection represents but a glimpse of an extensive exploration dubbed photographic distractions by Gossage himself.  In Who Do You Love Gossage reminds us what a photograph does and how it functions as an object.  Photographs takes us to the past; they transports us to a moment that has happened.  In these works, however, we are reminded of the functional quality of the photograph as an object.  We are asked to become aware of the transportive nature of the image, and challenged to let that go.  Here photographs float outside their frames as independent elements with scraps of paper and handmade marks.  These images engage another level in the visual plane; they allow the photograph to exist in the present.
