“Georges Tony Stoll synthesizes in the most radical way the aesthetic and philosophical approach of current representation. His simple, abstract, “disposable” but immaculate images reveal each time a personal enigma about our times.”
Alongside FIAC OVR 2021, in which 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 6 to Saturday, April 10, 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 that he is as much a photographer as a painter, almost by chance, when a friend gives him a digital camera. His photographs immediately take their place among the most radical and decisive images in the history of contemporary photography in the 1990s. As performances of bodies and objects captured in flash light, Georges Tony Stoll’s photographs are “false images of a set of different realities that we don’t necessarily have to recognize. (…) And these images become anonymous images, while forcing those who view them to then concern themselves with their experience of strangeness.”
