Sophie Ristelhueber, Solo Show

Once again, Sophie Ristelhueber takes us on a historical ground for her second personal exhibition at the gallery. A universal, anachronistic history which resonates as much with the present-day situation in Middle East as with the great Mesopotamian history, but also the personal history of the artist.


Introduced by The Lamentation over the destruction of Ur (around 2000 BC.), a Sumerian poem ungraved on a clay tablet nowadays preserved at Louvre Museum, the exhibition gathers a set of works that deceive dating as some of them have waited more than thirty years to be released from their original «taking» in Beirut, Babylon, Ramallah or in the Jordan Valley, before achieving their permanent form in which they are revealed today, in the literal and photographic sense.
