Chantal Crousel is pleased to present the first solo exhibition of Isa Genzken at the gallery. The exhibition is composed of a series of paintings, collages and sculptures, created for Paris.

Under the unambiguous title “Mona Isa,” the artist brings to the foreground a number of iconic personalities from the history of art, in particular from the Renaissance: da Vinci, Caravaggio, as well as Dürer. By introducing them next to portraits of herself and to her images of the contemporary world, she challenges them and propulses them into our time, next to Michael Jackson and other seminal figures of a society that - after all - has not evolved that much.
