In Louise Lawler’s photographs the context is her field of interest in which works of art are displayed, viewed, sold, and also stored in museums, private collections and auction houses. She is questioning the art practice in general, but at the same time she knows she is unavoidably part of this when she exhibits herself works of her own art. That demands self-criticism or at least a display consciousness. Most probably this brought her to have her huge photo prints matching exhibition walls, i.e. vinyl murals that are stretched and adjusted to fit the gallery walls. No wonder she called these exhibitions “Adjusted to fit”.
