It’s the final week to see #OrdinaryPictures and works like this one. In his work free fotolab (2009), British artist #PhilCollins presents 80 photographs that exactly fill the standard 35mm slide carousel he uses to project the images onto the gallery wall. The artist sourced the images in free fotolab by putting out a public call for rolls of undeveloped 35mm film, which he agreed to process and return to participants free of charge, on the condition that they cede all rights and claims of ownership to him. The images depict people engaged in everyday life. In free fotolab, Collins presents a collage of normal, ordinary pictures, the commonplace subject matter of which is contrasted by its presentation in a formal gallery setting.
