Catalogue Note

Nathan Kernan: How do you make those Blush marks, those wire-thin lines and tiny particles?

Wolfgang Tillmans: They are all done with different light sources, like flashlights, and the Super Colliders with a laser, and it’s quite an involved process which I don’t real­ly want to go into because, again, I want them to be what they are, and not just how they’re made. The initial question everybody asks when confronted with a photograph is who is it, when was it made, how is it made, and when you’re confronted with a painting you don’t ask that. I mean, why can’t it be enough to look at the object in front of you?

Wolfgang Tillmans in conversation with Nathan Kernan, "What They Are," Art On Paper, May - June 2001
