The artists of the Pictures Generation suggested that we see the world through the pictures made of it. In Untitled (Presence), Elad Lassry translates his interest in the presence of photographic imagery in daily life into real space, producing an exhibition and a performance featuring ten dancers from the American Ballet Theater and the New York City Ballet. Lassry took the Pictures Generation proposition as a starting point for an expansion of the concept onstage, flattening perspectival depth through the super-saturated colors and bright, even lighting used in his photographs. In the upstairs gallery, Lassry deployed a system of walls with apertures designed to render the space pictorial, prompting audience members to be newly aware of the intrinsic mediation of perception today and, possibly, to “reset” its ways of seeing.
