Galerie XII Paris
Galerie XII Paris is pleased to present "Mona Kuhn: Selected Works", a retrospective that celebrates the superb career of the German-Brazilian artist and coincides with her first monograph Works published by Thames & Hudson in 2021.br>br>
Known for her contemporary and intimate representations of the nude, Mona Kuhn is considered a leading artist in the world of figurative discourse. For this exhibition, Galerie XII Paris and Mona Kuhn have selected a range of works made in various places: from Arcachon to the stifling rainforest of her country of origin (Brazil), and the vast desert expanses of the Mojave in the UnitedStates.<br><br>The exhibition highlights the qualities that characterize Mona Kuhn’s photography; a mixture of romanticism, beauty, grace and innocence. The general feeling of intimacy is the result of the deep and lasting relationships that the artist develops with her models.The works on display cover the seminal period of Mona Kuhn from the early 2000s to the present day, from classical notes to the latest experiences playing with abstraction, as the artist continues to question the role of representation in photography<.br><br>*Works, Mona Kuhn. Thames & Hudson, 2021. Texts by Rebecca Morse, Simon Baker, Darius Himes, Chris Littlewoodet interview with Elizabeth Avedon. 30,5x24,5 cm. 180 illustrations color and b&w. 224 pages.
