AS IT LAYS, 2012 employs the television talk-show format as a platform to produce contemporary portraits. Using his own flat and backdrop works as set, Israel interviewed some of Hollywood’s most fascinating personalities in a manner that is uncomfortably blank and stoic. The work investigates the absurd behaviors and quotidian rituals that make up the waking hours of each subject’s life.
