Arendt & Art Event
The exhibition "Suzanne Lafont - Caractères" has been on view at Arendt & Medernach until 4 October 2011 every Saturday and Sunday from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Suzanne Lafont is renowed for her stylized images and theatrical narrative scenes. She turned to visual art after studying literature and philosophy, focusing from the start on how images result from a process of cultural elaboration and construction. Her more recent work develops the fictional aspect of images, exploring the playful potential of illusion.
Since the 1980s, Lafont has participated in numerous international exhibitions, including Documenta IX (1992) and X (1997).
Among her recent group exhibitions are elles@centrepompidou at the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris (2009), Street & Studio: An Urban History of Photography at Museum Folkwang, Essen (2009) and Tate Modern, London (2008), Trauerspiel at Passerelle, Brest (2009), and Reflexio, Imagem contemporãnea na França, Santander Cultural, Porto Alegre (2009).
Lafont's most recent solo exhibition - Index - took place at Erna Hecey Gallery, Brussels (2008).
This exhibition CARACTERES took place as part of the partnership of Arendt & Medernach with the MUDAM, where some works by Suzanne Lafont are also presented.
