Focus & Field documents Daniel von Sturmer's show at Young Projects Gallery, Los Angeles, 2014. The show comprises a solo survey of recent works (2008 – 2013) accompanied by a new 9-screen video installation, Camera Ready Actions. The book features 'Notes from the Field', an essay by Tara McDowell, former curator of SFMoMA and the CCA Wattis Institute.
Using video, photography, installation and architectural interventions, von Sturmer's work draws on more traditional mediums of painting and sculpture, making direct – and often humorous – references to still life, modernism & minimalism.
Drawing connections between psychology and philosophy, von Sturmer interrogates the modes of perception at play when a viewer encounters an artwork, and how they are influenced by presentation and context.
