Between ‘Being’ And ‘Object’

Conscientious Extended | A Conversation with CPC 2012 Winner Lisa Fairstein

“Also, photographic representation, especially as fabricated in my images, renders the subjects and objects as existing in a similar and precarious existential space – somewhere between being and object – and I wanted to emphasize this as a way of calling attention to questions about their existence as well.”

“And the sense of constructed space in the images, along with the physical edges of the photograph itself, exaggerate this further. This claustrophobic feeling makes me question what I am looking at and how it makes me feel, and, in that, it might lead to a consideration of the images and subjects in terms of what is “real”, or not.”
