Nature Morte, 7 Aug 2012 [cached]
Legrady, der bekannter für seine Verwendung modernster Technologien ist, machte sich das Linsenrastersystem zu eigen um die Fotografie in einen Dialog mit dem Kino zu setzen.
A leading figure in the realm of media art, George Legrady has created some of the most fascinating multimedia installations, data visualization projects and photography of the past twenty years. In his ongoing research into the semiotics of photography, socio-cultural narrative, interactivity and computational technologies, Legrady pushes and manipulates cutting edge technology to produce astonishingly subtle results that question our relationship with technology.
At Nature Morte Berlin the artist will present a new body of work, consisting of 8 lenticular photographic panels, a computer animation and a multimedia installation.
The work Refraction consists of 8 composite photographs, printed with the lenticular process which superimposes three images each becoming visible based on the spectator’s angle of view. Legrady rediscovered a series of documentary photographs he took in 1973 of the annual Hungarian gala ball in Montreal and was fascinated by their cinematic and seemingly staged quality. Legrady, who is more known for his use of cutting edge technology, appropriated the lenticular process (a retro printing method used in popular culture as early as 1940) to forge a dialogue between photography and cinema. By physically involving the audience as their movement determines the transition of the images, Legrady allows the spectator to be complicit in the timing and meaning of the work.
George Legrady was born in 1950 in Budapest and raised in Montreal. He received his MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute and has been a professor of interactive media arts at the University of California at Santa Barbara since 2001. His work has been exhibited at a number of prestigious institutions including the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, the Centre Pompidou in Paris, Zentrum fur Kunst und Medientechnologie (ZKM) in Karlsruhe, and the SOMArts Center in San Francisco.
