Looks Behind The Facade Through The Eyes Of Cindy Sherman

Scroll

Provocateur and icon of self-presentation Cindy Sherman is back with new art works. Until April 8 2017, New York-based Artist shows her latest pieces in Sprüth Magers Gallery, Berlin. On view are her most recent pictures from 2016, presented as a complete series for the very first time in Europe.

The large-scale color portraits show the artist presenting herself as various Hollywood divas from the golden era of 1920s cinema in the United States. Sherman, best known for her critical parodies of gender roles, sexuality and identity, now takes an ironic glance behind the sparkling facade of Hollywood goddesses.

All photographs have been produced through dye sublimation. Heat was used to transfer dye directly onto metal. Through this procedure glass protection for the pictures becomes superfluous. Thus the portraits become even more vital, the impact on the viewer is more direct than it would be if they were immured behind glass.
