Ralph Gibson: Vertical Horizon
10 June — 27 August, 2016
At 77, Ralph Gibson is still vividly exploring the particularities that built his identity as a photographer — and this new technology provides an intuitive extension of his approach focussing on the balance between representation and abstraction. More than ever, Ralph Gibson immaculately defines the structure of his images and plays on oppositions. The delicate boundary between lines and volumes gives rise to a tension at the very centre of the frame, enhanced by the portrait format of his photographs. As Thierry Bigaignon explains, “Ralph Gibson’s images highlight the idea of boundaries and opposition. They’re visual oxymorons, so we decided to title the exhibition Vertical Horizon, which perfectly encapsulates these concepts”.
