Team (gallery, inc.) presents till the 29th of september the new work of Ryan McGinley entitled Mirror, Mirror.
Ryan McGinley has been working on this project involving mirrors for the past three years. Inspired originally by instructional artworks by such divergent practitioners as Miranda July, Sol Lewitt, Rob Pruitt and Yoko Ono, McGinley soon realized that his proposed project would also allow viewers access to the kinds of private spaces that had figured so prominently in his work from the early aughts, namely the living spaces of New York’s stalwart population of bohemians.
For this project, McGinley chose the subjects. Each of them was provided with a camera, a set of instructions, three rolls of film and twenty mirrors. The rolls of film were delivered back to McGinley who sorted through the material selecting a singular image to represent each particular subject.
Much has been made of reckless youth as the binding which holds all of McGinley’s surprisingly disparate projects together — the early snapshot work, the road trip photographs, his work with human and animal models, his studio black and whites, his concert photography and his vast YEARBOOK endeavor.
A book documenting the entire series will be published by Rizzoli in time to coincide with the exhibition.
