Thomas Ruff Nudes at Gagosian

Finally saw this, blurred photos from porn. Works well, the simple trick infuses the dead overreproduced images with life. They look like they're moving or coming into focus (loading on an outdate internet connection). A clear success. There is noone in the gallery with you except a smartly suited guard, it feels a bit like a porn theatre with private booths. Contrary to the press release, the indecipherability (it's difficult to see what's going on) increases their attraction.
