The five artists in this exhibition incorporate existing photographs into their own photographic work, often radically rejuxtaposing the recycled or “cannibalized” imagery to darkly comic or profoundly disturbing effect. The work addresses such diverse issues as the objectification of women, the seductive nature of war, and genetic manipulation. Work by John O’Reilly, Tina Potter, Aura Rosenberg, John Schlesinger and Joachim Schmid. Essay and texts on each artist by Ron Platt.
