Commissioned by Gallery TPW to make a single image exhibition, with The Counselor, Nadia Belerique plays with the limits of photography. “All photographs are a hand and index finger, pointing to something else.” Belerique is interested to see what the photograph points to but is more interested in the hand (the photograph) itself. Can a photograph be a stand-in for what it depicts? A life size, cardboard cut-out of Star Trek’s Deanna Troi becomes a charming and awkward stand-in, the perfect image-object. Reworking the stand-in, Belerique’s new image teases us, asking us to linger longer in the moment when we look towards the hand that points.
