NANCY BURSON – Composites

Paci contemporary gallery, Brescia, 2018.

“Nancy Burson is a photographer who works with concepts and a conceptual artist who works with photographs. While it was not Burson’s intention, her fabrications challenged fundamental assumptions about the nature of photography and still do. Unlike a portrait that draws meaning from its connection to a real person, Burson’s pictures are simulacra; forms without substance that put a face on abstract concepts, personalizing the impersonal, and embodying the intangible.”
