FIELD TRIP # 11,
MARGRET WIBMER, AUSTRIA
“The above photograph was produced in Japan for my solo show at Art Gummi Gallery in Kanazawa. It was made in the private home of Mr. Yamazaki, a collector of antique audio and video apparature. The dog in the picture is nipper who served as a model in the famous painting titled 'his master’s voice’ as he is listening to a cylinder phonograph. Over a number of years I have produced a series of photographs that are concerned with how we relate to objects and the role of women in advertisement and modern consumer culture. My daughter Malaya appeared in many of these images. I will reveal more during the studio talk.“
