Untitled Billboard - Barbara Ess, 1988
Offset lithograph printed in color in ten sections on billboard paper.
10' x 22'
Edition size: 16
Barbara Ess’s billboard Limited Edition is a replica of her Untitled Installation. A billboard print, enlarged from a photograph made with a pinhole camera, lines the room like wallpaper. Printed in color from a black and white negative, the image has been reproduced in a medium never intended to be viewed from inches away. It shows tourists waiting to board the ferry for the Statue of Liberty, but through the eye of the primitive instrument, it might be a hazy mass of people crowding against each other in a frantic scene of escape.
