ELAD LASSRY is the companion publication to the same-named Vancouver Art Gallery exhibition (Jun 24-Oct 1). Surveying a decade of work by the Los Angeles-based artist, it demonstrates his interest in “the nature of visual representation,” with a special focus on the photographic image. Lassry makes, appropriates, wraps, obscures and alters photographs, his apparent subjects ranging across people, animals and still life as he deconstructs advertising, fashion, and other commercial photographic forms and strategies. With essays by co-curators Kathleen Bartels and Jeff Wall.
