    About The Work

    The artistic duo created a photographic edition in early 2013 as part of the Belvedere 21 exhibition Photos: Points of view in Austrian Photography from the 1930s until today. The exhibition revolved around the question ‘What is the current status of Austrian photography, and where is it going?’ Three basic motifs underlay the selection of works: things, people and photography itself. Historical to contemporary still life photography looks clearly at everyday objects and not least reflects a retreat into the private sphere.

    Clegg & Guttmann see their still lifes of meat as a humorous portrait of Austria and Austrian art history – from the shimmering gold leaf in Gustav Klimt’s paintings to the slaughtered animals of the Viennese Actionists. The silver materiality is likewise a melancholic reference to photography itself and to a time when silver gelatine prints were still produced by hand.
