Michael Hoppen Gallery is delighted to return to Art Genève this year where we will showcase works by Sarah Moon, Richard Learoyd, Ori Gersht, Fergus Greer, and Tiina Itkonen amongst others.
In conjunction with the opening of the ground-breaking exhibition Chrysalis: The Butterfly Dream at the Centre d'Art Contemporain Genève, we will exhibit a selection of Fergus Greer's portraits of the inimitable Leigh Bowery. Shot between 1988 and 1994, Greer's photographs capture the iconic artist and designer wearing some of his most extraordinary creations, complete with distinctive exaggerated make-up and overdrawn lips. A group of Bowery's costumes as well as Greer's photographs will be on view at the CAC Genève from 25 January.
The gallery will also present exquisite prints by two great masters of fashion photography, Sarah Moon and Deborah Turbeville and we are pleased to unveil new works by Ori Gersht from his most recent series Fields & Visions which see the artist return to the botanical themes that have occupied him for so much of the last decade.
The gallery will also exhibit a selection of photographs by Finnish photographer Tiina Itkonen from her ongoing study of Greenland, its inhabitants and ever-changing natural landscape. Photographing this region for nearly twenty years, Itkonen's works act as a powerful and striking reminder for climate protection...
