Untitled, 1974, color photograph, 27 x 43 cm, photographed by Ellen Ginton, courtesy of the artist

David Ginton

 

These photographs are part of a body of works created in 1974-1975, and based on actions or physical experiences taking place at, or beyond, the threshold of pain. In these photographs the sensation of pain is signified by the word "pain," which is written in blood on a military bandage. The bandages are wrapped around stigmata-like wounds, and hint at the fate of the artist as a victim of a past or future war. Alongside these two works is another photograph depicting a man whose head is bowed over a brick. This is a conceptual version of Goya's masterful etching The Sleep of Reason Produces Monsters. Ginton uses the reference to Goya to reflect on how thought is threatened by the awakening of emotional monsters while reason is asleep.

Born in Tel Aviv, 1947; lives and works in Tel Aviv.
