Portraits : 1968-2012 (Paris)
From 2014-10-31 to 2015-01-10

La Galerie VU’ présente une sélection de tirages de Jeffrey Silverthorne, dont l’oeuvre explore depuis plus de quarante ans les questions du sexe et de la mort, comme celles de la transgression, de la transcendance et de la métamorphose tout en expérimentant le champ des possibles du médium photographique. Cette sélection vient dialoguer avec l’univers emprunt d’étrangeté d’Alexia Monduit. Sur le fil du regard, son travail oscille entre instinct et introspection. Elle construit souvent ses images sur un mode séquentiel, qui s’il n’est pas intrinsèquement narratif,...

Travel Plans (Paris)

Their works broke with photography as it was conceived in Europe, and with the « humanist » trend that prevailed at that time.

Jeffrey Silverthorne (Arles)
From 2008-07-08 to 2008-09-14

An American artist little known in Europe, Jeffrey Silverthorne has for nearly forty years been considering the body and its representation. His photography, whether in black-and-white or colour, borrows from both documentary and staging techniques with a fluent, exuberant feel for investigation. He tirelessly explores the particular way in which photography can play at once with reality and fiction.In his photographs of dead people at the morgue, the Female Impersonators, or in his other portraits, he indeed borrows from documentary formalism; he sees himself as a witness. But like Diane...
