You are free to use your eyes and attribute values to things the way you want. The eyes are a great subversive tool because they technically don't underlie any control, they are free when used freely.
Chantal Crousel is pleased to present the first solo show by Wolfgang Tillmans in Paris since the remarkable exhibition Vue d'en haut at Palais de Tokyo in 2002.
Each solo exhibition by Wolfgang Tillmans is a complete universe. It reflects his world, here and now.
The images are of actual realities such as a boy sleeping in a park, a hairdresser in his military hair salon, a part of a plant and a window, an iceberg, as well as darkroom explorations of shape, colour and movement. Assembled into wall constellations, these enter into dialogue and friction with the newspaper clippings, collected objects, photocopied documents and his own photographs that are arranged on tables into sculptural pieces.
