Abstract (English)

"Lisa Klapstock's photographic practice challenges visual perception of everyday urban environments. This splendid first monograph, illustrated with dozens of colour plates, presents several series produced from the late 1990s to today. Living Room documents the hidden life of urban back lanes. Threshold - scenes shot through holes in backyard fences - reveals views that are invisible to the naked eye. Ambiguous Landscapes juxtaposes stark landscapes with and without the human figure (Klapstock herself). While the work is highly formalized and richly textured, Klapstock's overriding concern is the gray area between private and public and how, as both artist and woman, one inhabits that space. In English and French." -- Publisher's website.

Résumé

"La pratique photographique de Lisa Klapstock défie la perception visuelle de l'environnement urbain quotidien. Cette première monographie nous présente plusieurs séries produites durant les années 1990 jusqu'à aujourd'hui. La série Living Room documente la vie cachée des ruelles urbaines. Quant à Threshold - des photographies prises à travers des trous dans des clôtures -, l'artiste nous dévoile des scènes cachées à l'oeil nu. La série Ambiguous Landscapes juxtapose des paysages avec ou sans une figure humaine (Klapstock elle-même). Quoique l'œuvre soit formelle et riche en textures, la préoccupation principale de l'artiste demeure la zone grise entre le privé et le public et, en tant que femme et artiste, comment habiter cet espace. En français et anglais." -- Site de l'éditeur.
