In his first solo exhibition in Paris since 2002’s Vue d’en Haut, with Strings German artist Wolfgang Tillmans continues his intricately planned configurations of photographs capturing seemingly unrelated people, landscapes and objects juxtaposed with found media, news clippings, photocopied documents and various other objects. The photographs, together with the other elements of each arrangement, take on an almost sculptural quality once taken in as a whole, with each piece contributing to a dialogue embodied in the assembled work. Tillmans’ pieces will be on exhibition at Paris’ Chantal Crousel Gallery from September 13th through October 25th.

Tillmans, who is based in Berlin and London, won the prestigious Turner Prize in 2000 a mere 8 years after graduating from Bournemouth and the Poole College of Art. He was the first photographer and non-British citizen to receive the award. He has played a central role in the way that photography and photographic works are read and received in the art gallery world, and his innovative exhibition strategies have also set him apart as a sort of curator in addition to an artist.
