We are always in a society with everybody else. One has to question what it means, what we do. What does this constant self-expression mean? Is that maybe a terror of self-expression? It’s a lot about taking space—this sort of Western creative scene is taking a lot of space… Why should there be so many pages devoted to a young, Western lifestyle? How many more pictures of people standing in their Converse and jeans does it need? — Wolfgang Tillmans*
MOON IN EARTHLIGHT—a show of new and recent work by Tillmans that harkens back to his early passion for astronomy (and nary a Converse in sight)—is on view now in southeast England.
See link below for details.
Through September 5.
