Zoe Leonard

b. 1961, USA

New York-based artist Zoe Leonard balances rigorous conceptualism with a distinctly personal vision in her work, which merges photography, sculpture, and installation. By employing strategies of repetition, shifting perspectives, and a multitude of printing processes, Leonard's practice probes the politics of representation and display. Leonard explores themes such as gender and sexuality, loss and mourning, migration, displacement, and the urban landscape. Her photography specifically invites us to contemplate the role that the medium plays in constructing history, and to consider the roots of contemporary photographic culture. More than its focus on any particular subject, however, Leonard's work encourages the viewer to reconsider the act of looking itself, drawing attention to observation as a complex, ongoing process.

Zoe Leonard Transcends Time at the Whitney Museum Related Press Zoe Leonard Transcends Time at the Whitney Museum Hyperallergic : 7 May 2018

Zoe Leonard's photographs in Survey at the Whitney feel like memories you've always known, even if sometimes they don't feel like yours — a story you've heard before, or a friend of a friend whose name is always on the tip of your tongue. Leonard fixes the familiar with both a fast instinct and wide-eyed sincerity, somehow preserving in her...
