The Lobster Quadrille will be on display at the Photographic Collection of the SK Stiftung Kultur in Cologne from 3 May to 21 July 2019; the showcase was created as part of the project Artist meets Archive.
Roselyne Titaud draws the viewer into a realm of objects – many of which we frequently encounter in our everyday lives. Our immediate environment is the primary focus of Titaud’s visual explorations. Her colour photographs of still lifes and interiors were captured mostly in Berlin and France. In the context of the project Artist meets Archive, the French photographer (b. 1977) was given access to the holdings of the SK Stiftung Kultur Photographic Collection, in order to compile a selection of images that resonate with her own work. “If Bernd and Hilla Becher represent my parents, then Eugène Atget and August Sander are my grandfathers, Stephen Shore, Boris Becker and Petra Wittmar my cousins, and so forth,” says Roselyne Titaud. “How could I resist an invitation to show my images alongside the work of those I admire, and who have inspired me?”
