Martine Syms: Some What?


2019-08-martinesyms-install-img-0110_1_orig.jpg

Syms’s work extracts an image from a publication and designates it for placement in conventional advertising space. As it changes location, from the storefront of a commercial art gallery, to a billboard in a redeveloping neighborhood, the graphic picks up new meaning based on what is to be consumed in its surroundings. Its original print enlarged many times over, the image loses resolution and specificity, relating in a physical way to its open-ended literal question: Want some?
