After participating in Art Basel Miami Beach in 2019 and Art Basel Basel in September 2021, Galerie Poggi is pleased to present a solo show of Georges Tony STOLL in Art Basel Miami Beach from December 2nd to 4th. This time our booth will focus on some of Stoll's iconic photographs from the 1990s and 2000s, which made a stroke for the history of contemporary photography, particularly pointing out the influence of American culture and literature in his photographic practice.
In Avant-première to the large exhibition that will bring a new light on his 40-year production at the Collection Lambert in Avignon (March 2022), his solo show in Art Basel Miami Beach focuses on some of his iconic photographs from the 1990s and 2000s. Born in 1955 in Marseille, Georges Tony Stoll is one the most striking, singular, and prolific artists of his generation. And one of the most enigmatic as he voluntarily decided to almost withdraw himself from the art scene after his big show at Rencontres d'Arles (2009). Indeed, the internal turmoil Georges felt in the spotlight led him to a sudden but voluntary urge for isolation. So, in the secrecy of his Parisian studio, he decided to stay alone in his corner, to explore what he calls "the territory of abstraction" through his prolific and multidisciplinary production : paintings, photographs, tapestries, drawings, sculpture, etc.
