1000 WORDS LISA STEIN: THE CANARY AND THE HAMMER

Disgrifiad

Lisa Barnard’s highly-ambitious body of work The Canary & The Hammeris a response to both the events that followed the crash as well as gold’s status as a ‘barometer for the state of the economy, and is, most fundamentally, a potent symbol of ultimate value, beauty, purity, greed and political power.’ In so doing it raises a very interesting question about the medium it utilises: how can photography, which has eluded stable definition since its inception, a medium that inhabits both the tangible, real, and the virtual, respond to an event as abstract as the global financial crisis?
