James Ostrer

Né en 1979 - United Kingdom

BIOGRAPHIE

James Ostrer lives and works in London. He studied at the Royal College of Art, before becoming a set designer at the English National Ballet. After some scenery fell on him causing a back injury, he turned to photography. His portrait of interior designer Nicky Haslam sitting in Lucien Freud’s chair hangs in the National Portrait Gallery. Most of his work is “self-help therapy”, though, focusing on addiction and family.

James Ostrer’s work often tests the limits of the body politics in the ever evolving analysis of the western body, sexuality, and society. In 2009, Ostrer staged “Customer Container”, an installation in which the artist used photographs of himself taken by six different prostitutes under which the only condition was that they order him to perform as they wished. In 2011, his portrait of Nicky Haslam in Lucien Freud’s chair was chosen for the Taylor Wessing exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery.
