Exhibition catalogue published in conjunction with show held at Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden, Germany, June 12 - August 29, 2010. Foreword by Karola Kraus. Text by Mark Godfrey. "Christopher Williams began his career in the late 1980s appropriating advertising imagery; more recently he has begun to mimic such imagery himself, or at least adapt its capacity for pristine presentation and technical precision. Williams' prints of industrial products, animals, plants, modernist architecture and people pull the rug from under commercial photography with the lightest of tugs." -- publisher's statement.
