Flash Art Review - Sommer 2002
Anja Conrad "Asphalttapeten" - Sammlung Essl, Wien

At first sight there is little spectacle in Anja Conrad’s photographs: they depict everyday sights such as people drinking or street advertisements. The banality of these motifs is in keeping with a long tradition; portraiture has been a genre since the beginnings of photography, and the cityscape has been a favorite subject for photography’s greatest masters, from Eugène Atget to Thomas Ruff. While that tradition could become a paralyzing burden, Conrad manages to find her own path within both fields, acknowledging and exploiting the significant difference between the human eye and that of the camera: “I propose to use photography in the search for further realities, trusting the shutter to reveal visual clues that the human eye can’t catch.”
What the human eye can’t catch — her images of billboards in particular such as Reaction — demonstrate Conrad’s understanding of that approach. While urban life with its numerous stimuli tends toward a numbing of attention and receptivity, thus preventing saturation, the artist uses her camera as a sensitive instrument to examine and reflect its surfaces and nuances. And so it is only through photography that public space becomes visible as a monstrous and heterogeneous collage of worlds differing in size and space. On the surfaces of large architectural bodies, towering over the camera placed on the ground, models appear larger than life; in their exhibitionistic attitudes they are distinct from the codes of ordinary behavior, representing utopias rather than seducing consumers. If photography is often thought of as mortifying, here it is used for a different purpose: to revive and present images — the daydream-like, ephemeral quality of reality, thus becoming a medium in a double sense: not only the bearer and vehicle of information, but also a permeable membrane between realities constituted by perceptions technically different, but equal in value.
