Durga Rajah. I am not the Artist, I am the Photographer: a series of conceptual photo retakes
March 8–April 1, 2023 Student Gallery
I am not the Artist, I am the Photographer: a series of conceptual photo retakes approaches the photographic aspect of Conceptual Art as a subject for repetition, remediation, and re-presentation. Rajah’s exhibition, which features video, audio, and photography, presents ten “retakes” of iconic artworks. Inserting herself in the process of re-making the originals, the photographer pays both homage to them and creates new embodied meaning.
