Almine Rech Gallery is pleased to announce American artist Taryn Simon's sixth solo exhibition with the gallery. Simon will present for the first time in Belgium her series Paperwork and the Will of Capital. The exhibition will be comprised of large-scale color photographs and sculptures—the artist's first foray into the medium, which were debuted at the 56th Venice Biennale in 2015.
In her work, Simon combines photography, text, and graphic design, in conceptual projects addressing the production and circulation of knowledge, and the politics of representation. For this latest project, Simon explores the stagecraft of power, examining agreements, contracts, treaties, and decrees drafted to influence systems of governance and economics, from nuclear armement to oil deals and diamond trading.
