Catalogue Note

"Louise Lawler's photographs uncover the hidden interests, desires and declarations of those involved in presenting works of art; her photographs are engaged in a project to illuminate perception, to elucidate the senses... Photography is, for Louise Lawler, the handmaid of the physiognomic gaze: it does not reveal by representing a work of art, but by showing it in its own revealing situation, where it has been placed by people who have linked it to their own interests and desires; she shows the work of art with its framing, context and location."

Johannes Meinhardt, "The Sites of Art Photographing the In-Between," in Louise Lawler, An Arrangement of Pictures, New York 2000
