Douglas Gordon - “Larger Than Life”, “Life Size”, “Smaller Than Life” - 2011

The artist designed a three-part photographic series documenting a performance centered on his own hand. The artist sprays it with gold lacquer; another shot shows the paint dripping off his fingers. The vigorous removal of the gold-coated layer of skin the right hand in the third photograph is about to perform is a reference to the video series “Divided Self” from the late 1990s, in which various parts of Gordon’s body, including his arms, interact. The photographs also invoke discourses around the artist’s body as a source of visual creation: from Richard Serra’s video “Hand Catching Lead” (1968) to examples of Body art in which the media of film and photography likewise serve to turn the artist’s body itself into an image. The sequential quality of the photographs vividly suggests their origin in a performance and hints at Gordon’s engagement with processes in time.
