Robert Agostino | Slander (2014)
Chromogenic photographs (15cm x 10cm). Printed 2014.
Unique Edition (Edition of 1)
Moving away from the photographic print as a precious, untouchable object, Agostino embraces the tactile nature of these photographs, their history and function; these are photographic prints to hold, pass around and display. Slander shows a young artist maturing in his quest for honest images, while questioning the movement of clinical contemporary photography that places the image before the object. Agostino knows that the object and the image are indeed of equal importance.
Some prints display signs of use; creases, tears, folds.
