November 15, 2014 – January 10, 2015
Transition, an exhibition of photographic works by Lauren Marsolier, is on exhibit at Galerie Richard until January 10, 2015. It opened on November 15th. This marks the artist’s first solo exhibition in Paris, although her photographs were previously exhibited in the gallery’s New York location in January of 2014.
Located somewhere between fiction and reality, her images represent a mental landscape affected by a world of constant change. They show an unreality, transitional non-places where human action and inhabitation are recorded in strange antitheses of nature and artifice, or, better still, artificial nature and natural artifice.
French-born Lauren Marsolier lives and works in Los Angeles. She is the recipient of many awards including the 2013 Houston Center for Photography fellowship, where she had a solo exhibition. Her work was included in the ’31 Women in Art Photography’ 2012 selection by the Humble Art Foundation in NYC, ‘Looking at the Land’ at the RISD Museum of Art and also in the major 2013 London Exhibition ‘Landmark: The Fields of Photography’ at the Somerset House. Her images have been published internationally and the British Journal of Photography featured her as one of ‘20 photographers to watch in 2013’. Her first monograph ‘Transition’ has just been published by Kerber Verlag. On November 19, 2014, she will be part of a panel discussion about contemporary landscape photography at Tate Modern in London, moderated by William A. Ewing with fellow artists: Thomas Struth, Penelope Umbrico, Massimo Vitali and Mishka Henner. She will also have a solo show at Galerie Richard in New York in Spring 2015.
