Clint Roenisch is pleased to open 2013 with Show Room, a solo show of photographs and sculptures by Jimmy Limit on view till 23rd Feb. 2013.
Evolving out of an interest in stock photography and an affinity for the aesthetic of the ULINE Catalogue, Show Room showcases a collection of photographs and sculptures that explore the relationships between image, object, and consumption. Photographs are commonly used as tools to sell commodities yet have, naturally, also emerged as a commodity in their own right through fine art markets and stock photo licensing. Show Room addresses the tension between these roles and the multi-layered relationship between photography and commerce.
