Art In America

Anne Doran

at Invisible Exports,
89 Eldridge St.

Anne Doran's constellation-like arrangements of fragmented photos on honeycomb aluminum could be seen as time capsules of the moment before the Internet changed our daily lives. Yet her muscular work also comments perceptively on what those changes have meant—generating broken narratives of a world where desire, power and individuality are sold back to us. Doran, along with such artists as Cady Noland, Gretchen Bender and Jennifer Bolande, were a kind of second-wave Pictures Generation, attentive to methods of display as well as the increasing speed at which images were being produced and consumed. Selected from corporate reports, advertising circulars, porn magazines and military periodicals, the images, ranging from fields of comets and industrial products to naked bodies, are juxtaposed in wall reliefs that recall space stations as much as high-design decor items like shelving and clocks.
