LAURIE SIMMONS : FAKE FASHION
Feb 13 - Mar 17, 2018
In 1984 one of Simmons’s newly minted ‘Fake Fashion’ photographs was chosen for the cover of Double Trouble, a themed issue of the incisive and influential ZG Magazine, published in collaboration with Art and Text. In this series, Simmons simulated fashion photography using garments acquired from junk shops, combined with projected backdrops recycled from earlier works. These included her iconic dolls-house furniture scenarios, various underwater scenes and images of popular tourist destinations. In a feature article in the magazine, the critic Rosetta Brooks related Simmons’s work to emerging theories of photography and simulation: 'Whilst the photography of simulated worlds seems like a regression within the medium, for artists like Simmons it is a desire to get at what makes it real, what makes it happen.’
