Compulsion

Inspired by the photography of Weegee and Enrique Metinides, and films such as Metropolis and Un Chien Andalou, Compulsion confirms Prager's vivid cinematic aesthetic. Unlike her previous work, however, the protagonists remain anonymous and distant. Prager's new series investigates the complexity of observation within a society inundated by compulsive spectators, as well as the recurrent discourse in photography-that "meaning" is often derived from a multiplicity of gazes. The Compulsion catalogue is an illustrated book with no text that accompanied Prager’s exhibition shown at shown at M+B, Yancey Richardson Gallery and Michael Hoppen Gallery.
