Kunstnernes Hus presents Elad Lassry’s first solo exhibition in Norway. The exhibition will present a selection of photographs, sculptures and architectural interventions as well as a 16mm film. Lassry has developed one of the most distinctive visual styles in contemporary art using a combination of found images and carefully staged studio photographs investigating the nature of our perception and the meaning of the contemporary image.
Elad Lassry lives and works in Los Angeles. His work has appeared in many international exhibitions, including solo shows at the Contemporary Art Museum, St. Louis, MO (2010), Kunsthalle Zurich, Switzerland (2010) and Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (2009). Group exhibitions include the 54th Venice Biennale, International Pavilion, Deutsche Börse Photography Prize, The Photographers' Gallery, London, The Anxiety of Photography, Aspen Art Museum, Aspen, CO (all 2011), Sculpture Center, New York, ‘New Photography 2010’, Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY (2010) and ‘Younger Than Jesus’, New Museum, New York, NY (2009).
