Retrospective at the Jeu de Paume
Lorna Simpson (1960) is an American artist and photographer who made her name in the 80/90's with artworks such as Guarded Conditions and Square Deal.
The Jeu de Paume presents 30 years of Lorna Simpson’s work. Throughout her work, the artist tackles the complicated representation of the black body, using different media, while her texts add a significance that always remains open to the spectator’s imagination.
This retrospective reveals the continuity in her conceptual and performative research. She introduces complexity through her use of photography and film, in her exploitation of found objects, in the processes she develops to take on the challenges she sets herself and to spectators.
The exhibition gathers her large format photo-texts of the mid 1980s, which brought her to the attention of the critics. The exhibition is also an opportunity to discover her video installations: multivalent narratives that question the way in which experience is created and perceived more or less falsely .
