Katerina Jebb : Deus Ex Machina

Book - 2017
Rate this:
The catalogue of the first solo exhibition dedicated to Katerina Jebb, this book presents over a hundred photographs of the artist. The title, Deux ex machina , evokes the effect of the images created from the cold light of a machine to which Katerina Jebb grants the quasi-divine power of creation. Her collaborations with the fashion industry constitute an important part of her work - including her work for the Japanese brand Comme des Gar#65533;ons or for Christian Lacroix couture. The artist also delves in the themes of portraits and still lifes. The neutral backgrounds isolate the objects and subjects, giving them a solemn appearance. She positions herself at the border of reality and fiction and plays with the fluidity of genres: are we in front of a fashion photograph or a sacred image, are we in front of a human being or a statue?
