Twenty Photographic Sequences by Michel Szulc-Krzyzanowski Photography
In the October 20th issue, The New Yorker reviewed the gallery's current exhibition, Michel Szulc-Krzyzanowski: The Early Sequences 1977-1982. The full review is included here:
The twenty photographic sequences in this show were made between 1977 and 1982 while the artist was living in Baja California, which may account for their combination of conceptual smarts and trippy wit. Composed of between two and seven photographs, each piece finds Szulc-Krzyzanowski on the beach, playing with our perceptions. With the sea, the sand, and the sky as his serene backdrop, he levitates a stick, eclipses his shadow with his open palms, and shrinks a sand dollar. There's nothing particularly rigorous or revelatory here, but the work is entertaining, ingratiating, and not without flashes of magic.
