Catalogue Note

“From the start, Wolfgang Tillmans' abstract photographs played a decisive role in his gentle subversion of photographic hierarchies and his seductive emphasis on the materiality of photographic objects in his presentation of them. In the past decade he has pursued this tack, making wholly non-representational photographs that explore processes of exposure...the printed object itself, divorced from its reproductive function, is always the point.” 

(Dominic Eichler in Exh. Cat. New York, David Zwirner, Wolfgang Tillmans: Abstract Pictures, 2015)
