Description

The photographic source material, which Tatiana Lecomte liberally appropriates, which she “borrows”, to use the artist’s own words for her approach, is to be seen not only in a general historical context but most especially as being anchored in the history of photography. Images that document African safaris and stylize the slaying of animals as heroic feats, photos of animal husbandry showing a romantically glorified view, medical imagery, illustrations for cooking recipes, underwear advertising. In her work, Lecomte repeatedly references history as a laboratory for power and violence, a laboratory that is also dominated by gazes and imagery. She assumes the role of the one who shows what could already been seen and thus remained hidden and secret during the act of making visible. Meine erste Löwin (My First Lionness) is a montage, but it also signifies reflection on the principle of montage—and ultimately on the possibilities and conditions of photography itself.
