Christopher Williams’ latest works are unretouched photos of a bizarre range of subjects linked together by their status as products of an industrial society. Plastic corn that is used for photo shoots, a model who has washed her hair, put it up in a towel and then hair rollers, a car ad, a sea nettle, the side view of a flower kiosk – all these and more. Sure you can mention Modernism, but better you just keep quiet and look at the pictures.
Artist: Christopher Williams
Christopher Williams’ exhibition, For Example: Dix-Huit Leçons Sur La Société Industrielle (Revision 4), is on at the David Zwirner Gallery in New York until February 25.
