Wolfgang Tillmans PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Wolfgang Tillmans free pdf Alongside portraits, Tillmans has expanded his subject to include architecture, landscape and still life, and he has produced installations of his work reminiscent of Raymond Pettibon and the collage techniques of the 1960s conceptual artists. From lifestyle magazines spreads Tillmans has moved to room-sized installations, for example of faraway views the concorde flying overhead (Chisenhale Gallery, London, 1997) as well as a series of found photographs of soldiers from newspapers (British Art Show, 1999). In such installations of his unframed photos stuck to the wall with tape like images cut-out of magazines, he references his own non-art origins and his continuing pursuit of breaking down the old-fashioned divisions between art, fashion and photography.
