Joe Sola

Consisting of only six photographs and a video trailer accessible from the gallery website, Joe Sola's exhibition “Pictures" is a playful look at the fusion of fantasy and reality. The obviously digitally created photographs feature a 3D model of the artist presented as if he were a monochromatic sculpture. In one image he is draped over a stool, in another he stands behind a piece of cardboard in a room with a cat, in another only his arm appears, outstretched on the floor alongside a desk lamp which is situated below a toy airplane. These staged interior scenes are carefully constructed so that the real and the fabricated seamlessly coexist. The trailer — a live action movie that has nothing to do with the exhibition — begins with a police officer drawing up a ticket and a bikini-clad potter. It ends with an animated barking dog. The video, like the photographs, pokes fun at the artifice of Hollywood.
