Candida Hofer is part of the new wave of large scale photographers. These massive photographs interogate the sensation, conditions, and the notion of space and how space is represented. At Yvon Lambert, the photos exhibited are locations in France, like the BNF national library, and the Hall of Mirrors in Versaille. The complete absence of human presence in these still historic lieux.
Yvon Lambert is one of my favorite commercial galleries in Paris. Few highlights from recent exhibitions there. Barbara Kruger wall paper piece in the entree. Kendell Geers carved stars into this human skull. Working with skulls seems to be the new medium for contemporary sculpture, seeing as how successfull Damien Hirst’s collaboration with Swarovski .
