Inez & Vinoodh
from January 24 to March 9 2013
Gagosian Gallery Paris
This is Inez & Vinoodh first time exibit that displaying
a selection of rarely seen shots and limited-edition photographs.
Partners in life and work for twenty-five years,Inez & Vinoodh
were among the first photographers to harness the full potential
of digital manipulation in portraying the human condition.
Combining the beautiful with the bizarre, the elegant with
the extreme, the classical with camp, their edgy images depict
human identity as exquisite corpse, the spirit of transformation
that has fueled the march of art history and which has become,
more than ever, a sustaining aesthetic principle of our own time.
Beginning in the early 1990s, they have treated a myriad of genres
(nude, portrait, still life, tableau), producing images for art, fashion
and popular culture as well as experimental montage and assemblage.
Using the digital medium as the very tool of the uncanny,
Inez & Vinoodh seek ever new ways to suggest the complex internal
dynamics that lie beneath appearances, mapping contemporary
beauty in all its guises from the classical to the utterly extreme.
Basically every picture we take is a self-portrait-a picture of how
we feel at that moment in our lives. —Inez & Vinoodh
