Figures, 2012

Düsseldorf artist Matthias Wollgast series Figures are based on the photographic technique described in his book Notat II. They are contact proofs of drawings and foils but there has been no use of a camera at any time. The fact that it is not immediately obvious that these are in fact drawings made from photographs of original sculptures questions the way we believe in reproduction and the meaning of authorship.
