New York Times Review: Christopher Williams at David Zwirner

Posted By Administration, Thursday, November 20, 2014

Christopher Williams:  For Example:  Dix-Huit Leçons Sur la Société Industrielle (Revision 19) 


through December 20, 2014


The idea of photography-as-apparatus has guided Mr. Williams throughout his career.  he has analyzed different genres of photography and literally dissected cameras and photographed their components.  He resumes this project here, with photographs of bisected camera lenses; a professional show rooster depicted in its trained pose; and a half-submerged cooking pan that riffs on cheery product advertisements.  He is not so much altering the program of photography, however, as illustrating and fetishizing it.  His images are meticulous and gorgeous, but programmed to seduce rather than transform.     -Martha Schwendener
