MindscapesRevolver Publishing, Berlin 2016
Lilly Lulay’s Mindscapes series, begun in 2007 and still ongoing, is made exclusively using found photographs sourced from different places and times. Cropped and recombined by the artist, these images that once have belonged to others became abstract compositions, scenes of an inner world of memory and imagination to which no camera has access: Mindscapes. If seen from a certain distance, the collages recall subjects such as mountains, panoramas, urban buildings, whereas from closer up they reveal a plethora of fragments: small portions of reality that others have voluntarily framed or included casually in their photographs, shot and then sold, abandoned or lost.
For the publication original sized reproductions of the Mindscapes are accompanied by full format pages with blown-up images. These render visible haptic aspects of the original collages: relief structures and the materiality of papers used, scratches, dust and remains of glue.
Lilly Lulay’s Mindscapes—all works are unique pieces—had been shown in various group and solo shows in France, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, the Netherlands and the US. The publication is the first one to date, which puts together works from the past eight years with essays from four different authors (one English, one French, two German), each of them offering an individual viewpoint on the series.

Foam Magazine #52: Talent Issue 2019
This edition of Foam Magazine Talent Issue contains a selection of 20 artists delineating photography’s state of affairs. Next to floating trends and tendencies, artists have been steadily focusing on social, political and environmental concerns, often intertwined with identity and personal representations.
Today’s emerging photographers cross borders with striking ease. Classic two-dimensional representation is now interchangeable with object installations, making the experience of the work as important as its vision. Archival materials continue to have a very important role, together with multi-layered, long-term research. As always, each portfolio is accompanied by a critical essay offering further insight into the nature and concept of the project.

Out of Office, Museum für Konkrete Kunst, 2017Die Ausstellung „Out of Office“ im Museum für Konkrete Kunst in Ingolstadt thematisiert das Büro als Sinnbild der modernen Gesellschaft und ihrer Organisationsprinzipien. Darin sehen die konkreten Künstler das Büro als Signum für Regulierung, Ordnung, Verwaltung, Bürokratie, Herrschaft und Machtausübung. Bürokratische Aufgaben sind durch eine strenge beziehungsweise strikte Regelbefolgung gekennzeichnet, die sich üblicherweise in mathematischen Operationen und religiösen Ritualen wiederfinden. Auch im zunehmend digitalen Zeitalter bleiben analoge Hilfsmittel wie Klebezettel und Lineale in Verwendung, die von den Künstlern als Objekte in neue Konstellationen gebracht werden.Verlag Surface, Frankfurt am Main, 2017 Theres Rohde and Simone SchimpfISBN 978-3-939855-51-4114 Seiten19,90 EUR zzgl.

A Matter of Memory: Photography as Object in the Digital AgeGeorge Eastman Museum, 2016
The majority of photographic images today are recorded and viewed digitally, rather than on film and paper. Amateurs, photojournalists and commercial photographers alike rarely produce material objects as the final step in their photographic process, making photographs in the form of physical objects increasingly scarce.But what happens to personal and collective memories when photographic images are not instantly accessible on the face of physical objects? How is society’s relationship to memory changing as digital photographs become the norm?
A number of contemporary artists are making work that suggests the potential consequences of photography’s latest metamorphosis. Two main strategies emerge: some artists dig deep into photographic materials as though searching for the locus of memory, and others incorporate found photographs into their work as virtual talismans of recollection. Both highlight the presence of the photographic object and function as self-conscious meditations on photography’s ongoing reorganization of our mental and physical landscape.
A Matter of Memory features the work of more than 30 artists including Thomas Barrow, Matthew Brandt, Ellen Carey, John Chiara, Adam Fuss, Robert Heinecken, Leslie Hewitt, Kenneth Josephson, Laura Letinsky, Lilly Lulay, Chris McCaw, Diane Meyer, Yola Monakhov Stockton, Vik Muniz, Floris Neusüss, Marlo Pascual, Matthew Porter, Taryn Simon, Michelle Stuart, Kunié Sugiura, Bertien van Manen, James Welling and Augusta Wood.
