Cindy Sherman at Gagosian
Cindy Sherman’s first exhibition with Gagosian’s Paris satellite is a series that evolved from an editorial project for Pop magazine, using clothes from the Chanel archives. The garments range from 1920s haute couture designed by Coco herself to contemporary creations by Karl Lagerfeld. Recondite female figures stand against vast and inhospitable natural landscapes. Elaborately costumed, they appear at odds with the backdrops of desolate plains, barren trees, and otherworldly wintry terrains. Sherman shot the background landscapes on the isles of Capri and Stromboli, in Iceland during the 2010 volcanic eruption, and on Shelter Island, New York, then manipulated them digitally to create lush and painterly effects.
Until 10 Oct. Tue-Sat 11am-7pm.
