Event Description

When he named his series of photographs Nude visiting an exhibition or Nude visiting the studio, Robert Schwarz deliberately decided to drive the spectator on a wrong track. By doing so, he prepared the ground to lead us to an inescapable parallel with the Nude descending a staircase, 1912, which resulted into the well-known historical scandal. Admittedly, Duchamp’s masterpiece conjures up photography and, more particularly, the motion-analysis as developed by Marey, superimposing on a canvas the successive states of a cubified woman in movement. But this is a wrong track, just a gesture of pretended decency to divert the too-superficial observers, who will just smile and go their ways.
There is much more, in these series. And in a very different register: that of a profound questioning of the respective statuses of painting, of photography, of the museum as an institution, of the artist’s studio and, finally, of the artist and of the spectator of his artefacts.

Salut Robert,

Désolé de n'être pas venu au vernissage, le temps me manque. Dommage que le site de la galerie, qui doit se trouver à un petit millier de kilomètres d'ici, ne montre pas quelques toiles. J'aurais bien aimé voir les récentes que je ne connais pas. En attendant la phot est très bien. Embrasse Anna et à un de ces jours.

Bises,

Christian
