Jeffrey Silverthorne at the Galerie Vu'

 In > art culture design

For the past 40 years US photographer Jeffrey Silverthorne has continually explored the subjects of sex and death. In this retrospective exhibition Travel Plans, Jeffrey Silverthorne reexamines his work via an open book of more than 150 photographs. The exhibition however has no chronological or serial structure. Silverthorne works with all the uses made possible by photography including collages and photomontage, forging a fresco, a veritable esoteric tableau created by a certain Mr. Lotus, his alter ego, whose writings fill 4 chapters of the exhibition catalogue. ‘Discovered’ internationally via a show at the Rencontres d’Arles festival in 2008, his first pictures date from 1970, at the morgue in Rhode Island and reply to a statement by Diane Arbus, who declared that there was nothing there to photograph.
Until 29 Oct. 2-7pm. Closed Sun.
Galerie VU’, Hôtel Paul Delaroche, 58 rue Saint Lazare, 9th.
