Thomas Ruff photographs Paul Nizon text Jasper Morrison case
We chose Thomas Ruff’s first series of photographs of petit-bourgeois interiors, captured with a coldness characteristic of the Düsseldorf School, photographs taken in the homes of his parents and friends between 1979 and 1983. Following in the wake of Paul Nizon, they give us the sense of the interiors of motels or caravans–ripe with a certain lyrical sadness.
Jasper Morrison has drawn his inspiration from an industrial insulating material, creating a bees’ nest cast in transparent resin held in a white wooden frame. The typography, on the exterior surface, is composed of white marbles embedded in the alveoli of the bees’ nest. Like an echo of the photographs, the text follows the outlines of a fragile line architecture.
