JOHN STEZAKER
Dec 1, 2017 - Jun 1, 2018
Using vintage photographs, old film stills, postcards and book illustrations, John Stezaker makes collages that subvert their original imagery, creating unique and compelling works of art. Collages from his Mask series will be shown, in which glamorous sitters’ faces are overlaid with scenic postcards featuring waterfalls bridges, seascapes; Untitled (Film Portrait Collages) in which photographs of B-movie actors are spliced together; and other works that combine and mirror photographs to subtly destabilise the image. This exhibition marks the gift from Karsten Schubert to the Whitworth of nineteen collages by John Stezaker, and a further three collages presented by the artist himself.
