Frieze, New York, NY
May 14 - 17, 2015
Trained in textiles, fashion, art, and photography, Anna-Sophie Berger often focuses on the mutability of fashion and its crossover into art—the ways in which the image is distributed and ultimately dissipates.
For Frieze Frame, Berger presents photographic imagery printed in varying dimensions and materials onto different types of fabric. Taken on the artist’s phone, these pictures nod both to industry (they are repeated through each roll of fabric) and to intimacy (a record of the artist’s private moments). Also on view are loaves of freshly baked bread which have inherent dual qualities of nurture and decay. Berger’s objects and images connect immediate use with wider circulation, the body with publication and distribution. Freely traversing systems of value, they encourage an oscillation between the sensual need to yield and a conscious effort to resist.
