Candice BREITZ

TITLE_OEUVRES

" Mothers and Fathers "

Video

Born in Johannesburg 35 years ago now living in Berlin,the artist Candice Breitz - who won the international Prize of Contemporary Art last year from the Prince Pierre Foundation of Monaco - falsifies, pirates, assembles, samples.She is fascinated with the images produced by the mass media and the behaviour sometimes bordering on insanity of certains fans. After having been among the invited artists of the last two exhibitions from the Collection Lambert à Avignon,
Théorème (en 2005) et Figures de l'acteur (en 2006) she now has the honor of an exclusive exhibition devoted to her own works. Other than the giant photos from the series Monument, we find her works "King" (a portrait of Michael Jackson), "Queen" (a portrait of Madonna), or again "Working class Hero" (a portrait of John Lennon). Adding amongst others "J'embrasse pas". Illus "Working class hero" a portrait of John Lennon.
