Description

Emphasizing the central role that others—mother, family members, ex-lover, collectors, anonymous patrons, etc.—play in his work, and the slippage of authorship and agency that he often deliberately gives them, the artist has entitled his first institutional solo exhibition organized by WIELS Contemporary Art Centre, Brussels, and the catalogue that accompanies it: Leigh Ledare, et al. The richly illustrated full-color publication, including two newly commissioned essays and an interview with the artist, features examples from nearly all his photographic series to date, as well as stills of video works, text-based pieces, and a number of newly produced pieces never shown before.
