"Georges Tony Stoll most radically synthesizes the aesthetic and philosophical approach of today's representation. His simple, abstract, "disposable" yet irreproachable images reveal each time a personal enigma about our time".
Louis Mesplé, L'aventure de la photo contemporaine de 1945 à nos jours, Ed. Chêne, 2006, Paris. p. 206.
In parallel to the FIAC OVR 2021 where the gallery is participating with a selection of iconic photographs from the 1990s by Georges Tony Stoll, Jérôme Poggi is pleased to present an exhibition of his photographs and tapestries at the gallery from Saturday, March 6th to Saturday, April 10th, 2021.
Facing, properly speaking, these photographs, several paintings by Djamel tatah are displayed in the exhibition space, offering a dialogue between two pictorial and photographic works, abstract and figurative.
1993 : Georges Tony Stoll (born in Marseille in 1955) discovers he is a photographer as much as a painter, almost by chance, when a friend offers him a Numatic camera. His photographs immediately took a place amongst the most radical and decisive images of the history of contemporary photography in the 90s. As performances of bodies and objects captured in the light of the flash, the photographs of Georges Tony Stoll are "false images of a set of different realities that we must not necessarily recognize. (...) And these images become anonymous images, all the while forcing those who look at them to be concerned then by their experience of strangeness".
