kaufmann repetto is happy to announce Talia Chetrit’s first solo exhibition at the gallery. In Model, the artist reflects on the complex relationship between reality and representation through the dynamic exchange between the subject and the photographer, and investigate the themes of authenticity in the photographic medium and the dynamics. Alongside a new series of photographs, a video captures Talia Chetrit’s parents, present in earlier photographic works, as unwitting subjects of a series of video clips. Further confounding the act of staging an image and the relationships created in the act of photographic portrayal, the video candidly records their self-conscious posturing. While Talia Chetrit photographs, a digital camera films the artist’s unsuspecting mother and father, capturing interstitial situations – bits of conversations and gestures – whose intimacy is made public.
