Artist bio:

Artifacts is part of HORIZON/S, a series of still lives based on the American arts and culture magazine, Horizon, which debuted in September 1958. The publication provided a popular visual platform, disseminating various art historical narratives, including an increasingly canonized form of Modernism. Focusing on the first decade in print, Lipps has carefully cut out images from vintage issues to create his own curated selections. These groupings are then lit and re-photographed into complex tableaux that offer a personal meditation on the politics of 'the collection,' while placing pressure on the dominant myths that structure these cultural narratives. Along the way, Lipps provides an unexpected archive of print culture that attests both to the materiality and obsolescence of the medium. In this, Lipps advances his own exploration of analog technologies, while speaking to the shifting nature of the photographic. Works from the HORIZON/S series are in LACMA, MOCA and the Hammer Museum's permanent collections.
