A Handful of Dust Featuring Mona Kuhn

Le Bal
16 October 2015 - 17 January 2016

The exhibition takes as its starting point two significant events that happened in Europe in October 1922. In the Parisian journal Littérature, Man Ray published his photograph of dust gathering on the surface of Marcel Duchamp’s Large Glass; and in the London journal The Cirterion TS Eliot published his modernist masterwork The Waste Land (containing the immortal lines ‘I will show you fear in a handful of dust.’)

The exhibition showcases aerial photography, forensic photography, abstractions of landscapes, ruins, postcards and press photos of the American dust storms, artists’ videos, film clips, documentary photography and site specific works.
