In allusion to Andy Warhol’s “Double Elvis,” Candice Breitz has created photographs of the five pairs of twins who participated in her performance “New York, New York.”
Candice Breitz: “I am interested in deploying the art work as a catalyst, one which momentarily freeze-frames problematic ways of making meaning, and renders them strange. My interest lies not in censoring the desires inspired by the commodity (be that commodity a hipper-than-thou consumer trademark or a cheaply printed centrefold), but in recasting them so as to expose their logic, and, in certain cases, to push their boundaries.”
