Luc Delahaye — 2006-2010
Past: January 8 → March 5, 2011
Galerie Nathalie Obadia organises the first solo show by Luc Delahaye in its Parisian space.
From 8 January to 5 March 2011 Luc Delahaye will be presenting ten new large-format photographs made over the last four years.
Often taken on the scene of topical events, Delahaye’s photos embody an approach that is at once direct and detached, and their narrative power is sustained by the spectacular effect of their large format. Formed from an ensemble of conflicting forces, as a node of formal tensions, they encourage viewers to take a distant position and to meditate the relation between art, information and history. At once obvious and enigmatic, his work illustrates Borges’ definition of poetry as “the imminence of a revelation as yet unproduced”
This is the first time the artist has shown his work in France since La Maison Rouge in 2005. A book published by Steidl will accompany the exhibition.
Opening Saturday, January 8, 2011 at 6 PM
