Opening of installation Flawless, Seamless

The installation consists of a large two-piece photograph printed on a mesh banner and attached to a scaffolding structure.

The banner shows a US stocking advertisement from the 1930s that was reproduced in Photography in the Modern Advertisement printed in 1937. The photograph depicts a woman’s hands demonstrating the transparency of the stocking. Transparency is one of the keywords of the installation – first, that of the stockings in the photograph, and second, the transparency of the mesh banner that allows the oversized hands to communicate with the architectural environment that forms its backdrop.
