Auction Result
BI
SIMMONS Laurie created this series “Lying Objects” with set of 4, who is a photographer and filmmaker in U.S.A. Attaching with book, perfume bottle and terrestrial globe on the feet cut from a doll, the photograph expressed the gap between reality and fiction masterly. These works came from SIMMONS’s nostalgia of her childhood. “I tried to revive the atmosphere I felt…the feeling of 1950s was both beautiful and lethal in my opinion.” SIMMONS created photograph with series, she began a new series after finishing one as creating a story. This “Lying Objects” series was created with “Walking Objects” and “Talking Objects” at the same time in the later 1980s.
SIMMONS created photograph works by constructing the fantasy world with toys, ventriloquist’s dolls and objects. It was considered as feminism context in 1970s, but she was re-evaluated as a radical artist by expressing the modern society from ordinary level in recent years. SIMMONS’s works are owned by many famous museums such as Moma, National Gallery of Art and Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
