Susan Hiller, Small study for "Homage to Marcel Duchamp" 2011-2012. Favorite
Susan Hiller’s Homage to Marcel Duchamp is an archive of “aura photographs” that the artist has amassed over a number of years. The reference to Duchamp originates from the 1910 portrait of his friend Dr. Dumouchel in which vibrating colours follow the contours of the doctorʼs body and a luminous white band radiates from his healing hands. Hiller interprets this work as “an aura study in the clairvoyant tradition”. In this print, Hiller combines eight found “aura photographs” exploring our desire to experience, record, and classify spectral phenomena.
