“Eat Abstractedly” at Mary Mary

Daniel Gordon

Photography is in a good place right now, pre-packaged in a liquid asset - no matter how banal (say, Jakschik) or garishly putrid (Gordon) the work becomes subject, concept. All work equalized under the format and coherent, any artistic dissonance mediated by the format. In the diaspora of images available today, any practice is coherent in comparison. The image package. The predetermined object, say even a chair, a format, allows an immediate relation to, a lozenge for swallowing. The slight remove allowing its crystalline vessel. A photo of anything, a feed of it.
