Imposition © Michael SnowDate made: 1976Materials: colour photograph, wood frameMeasurements: 195 x 117 cmCollection: Marielle L. Mailhot, Montreal; Ludwig Museum, Cologne; Ydessa Hendeles, Toronto

Imposition, 1976, and Crouch, Leap, Land, 1970, coax viewers to assume positions similar to those performed by the models in the photographs. The tilt of the head required to study Imposition (a photograph hung on its side) leaves us mimicking the poses of two models who in turn contemplate a photograph, while in Crouch, we must kneel to observe the images of a crouching, leaping, and landing woman affixed to the bottom of three hanging stations. Our recourse to Snow’s photography is never direct but rather directed: We double take, calculate, rotate, and circulate to Snow’s specifications.
