Substance and Shadow: Alberto Giacometti sculptures and their photographs by Peter Lindbergh

Regular price Regular price $50

This book was published on the occasion of the exhibition Substance and Shadow: Alberto Giacometti sculptures and their photographs by Peter Lindbergh at Gagosian, Britannia Street, London. It brings together sculptures by Giacometti, dating from 1919 to 1965, and photographs by Peter Lindbergh.

In 2016, Lindbergh was invited to photograph the bronzes and plasters by Giacometti held in the collection of the Kunsthaus Zürich—the largest and most important museum collection of the artist’s works—including 150 sculptures, as well as key paintings and drawings. In their stark, tenebrous realism, Lindbergh’s black-and-white photographs assiduously capture the mood and texture of Giacometti’s sculptures. The publication features a conversation between Lindbergh and Catherine Grenier, director of the Fondation Giacometti.
