Introducing Casemore/Kirkeby at Paris Photo Los Angeles, May 1-3, 2015!!

Monday, April 20, 2015


 

 

Casemore/Kirkeby is delighted to invite you to Paris Photo Los Angeles for its inaugural solo exhibition - Todd Hido: Selections from a Survey. Casemore/Kirkeby is a new gallery project and partnership between Stefan Kirkeby of Smith Andersen North and Julie Casemore.

 

This site-specific installation in the NY Backlot of Paramount Studios invites viewers to dwell on the images and ideas that have followed Hido throughout his career, continually finding new manifestations in his work. This selection focuses on Hido's primary model Khrystyna - a tacit partner in his cinematic narratives, and a shape shifter in the nightscapes, interiors, and psychological landscapes that she haunts. The result is a deeply personal collection of imagery, often drawn from Hido's own biography and his childhood home of Kent, Ohio - the place that has guided him on his sustained inquiry into the darker aspects of American suburban life through the lens of his own imperfect memory. The exhibition will include several new, never before published works by Hido, along with classic pieces that become elements in his carefully composed sequences.
