Pictures Extra and Other, February 17-April 16, 2011
Press release

Pictures extra and other explores through the work of Erica Baum, Annette Kelm and Josephine Pryde the operations of seemingly straight depiction. The pictures are frontal, precise, factual. They are close-ups of objects- library catalogue cards and book indexes (Baum), garments (Pryde), still lifes (Kelm); but in excess of their formal structure that allows for comparisons to the dispersed methods of documentary, fashion and advertising, they convey, instead of an inclination for taxonomy, expressionless objectivity and emptiness, something other and beyond the naked representation of objects.
