W. o’ W.: Jan Groover

“I don’t know why I chose forks –

I just took my camera to the kitchen sink… Actually, I have a notion that everything can be pictured, that content is not that relevant.


“I think it’s lovely that a knife can be pink.

Its shape can be molded by light, the silver surface reflects and picks up bits of color –

it’s all very liquid. And the kind of information that is possible in a small space, like that created by the borders of these pictures, can be so crystal clear and appropriate – the issue is really about pushing some thing, some form, into a space that it seems to belong in. In the real world,

these forks and kitchen implements can have many associations and functions;

in the photographs, it doesn’t matter.

Formalism is everything.”
