Geneve, Switzerland

Oct 11, 2019 - Jan 25, 2020

1/5

Press Release:

 

Works from 1987-2019 explore various aspects of LaChapelle’s vast career to reveal the unique point of view which has expanded the definition of photography and established the image maker as a fixture in contemporary art.

Highlights of the exhibition include My Own Liz (2017), an homage to LaChapelle’s early mentor – Andy Warhol, as well as Rape of Africa (2009), a re-imagining of Sandro Botticelli’s Venus and After the Deluge: Statue (2012), a romantic bodement of temporal beauty set in this present biblical epoch. In Gas Shell (2012) a mundane symbol of the industrial revolution becomes a temple, reclaimed by its own bloodline in the prehistoric jungle. On view from LaChapelle’s newest series is Annunciation (2019), a vibrant interpretation of Announcement of Incarnation.
