The power of purism

Share:

Jean-Baptiste Huynh presents his photographic interpretation of selected objects, sculptures, paintings and artefacts from the most famous museum in the world – the Louvre. Each of his large-format silver gelatin prints depicts a piece of art from a different era, artistic genre and section of the museum. In his photographs of historical artworks, Huynh illustrates the sense of perseverance in creating something lasting: The photograph ‘Bol Vert’ for example depicts the base of a centuries-old container in such a way that it looks like Planet Earth. The title of the series – ‘Remanence’ (Latin, remanere – to remain, to be left behind) – alludes to the passing down of cultural heritage, as well as perhaps Huynh's sense of ambivalence towards it. The exhibition will be open at the CWC gallery in Berlin from 22 February to 11 May 2013, and will be complemented by acclaimed works from some of the artist's past series.
