NEW YORK—The architecture of the gallery is an essential component of “Elad Lassry: Untitled (Presence),” a photography exhibit that explores the relationships of various media. A complement to the Lassry billboard installed along The High Line at the end of the summer, the exhibit is shown in a pair of spaces divided by walls with geometric cut-outs and pink and green scalloped edges at The Kitchen.
The gallery describes the work of Los Angeles-based Lassry thus: “To date, Elad Lassry’s practice has revolved around cultural conditions surrounding photography and, more specifically, the question of when the photographic image obtains presence—becoming at once a kind of material object and display for viewers’ projections. In Untitled (Presence), Lassry extends such an inquiry into real space, producing not only an exhibition but also a performance featuring ten dancers from the American Ballet Theater and New York City Ballet.”
“Ed Lassry: Untitled (Presence)” is on view from Sept. 7 to Oct. 20, 2012.
