Tomorrow, May 7, marks the opening of “The Hugo Boss Prize 2020: Deana Lawson, Centropy.” Last October, Lawson became the first photographer to receive the biennial prize.
Lawson creates images that are rooted in a moment from the tangible world, but ultimately exist in the shimmering in-between space of dreams, memories, and spiritual communion, where the everyday is transfigured into the uncanny and the magnificent.
Her photographs and films result from collaborations with strangers whom the artist encounters by chance or deliberately seeks out. These individuals are often depicted within richly textured domestic settings in which the details of decor, lighting, and pose are precisely choreographed.
