Yamini Nayar
Medium: C-print
Year made: 2010
Yamini Nayar (b. 1975, Detroit) works with installation and architecture as photography, creating imagined, psychologically laden interiors from found and discarded materials. These installations are destroyed after the work is photographed, so that the photographic image serves as a stand-in for the original work. In representing invented spaces as still images, any sense of scale is concealed from the audience. The interiors appear destroyed by acts of nature. They have been described as “interiors in dreams, strangely familiar, even inviting at first, but look around and you’ll see that nothing’s quite right.”
Location: San Francisco
Date acquired: 01 May 2012
