Yvon Lambert is pleased to announce VAMPYR an exhibition by American artist Anna
Gaskell and Scottish artist Douglas Gordon.
Through the combination of their respective works—videos, installations and photo- graphs—Anna Gaskell and Douglas Gordon provide visitors with a visual and sound dialogue within the gallery’s two exhibition spaces.
In Anna Gaskell’s fourth exhibition with Yvon Lambert, she works closely with the Bols- hoi principal dancer Svetlana Lunkina, using their interplay to examine and subvert the role of the performer vs the role of the spectator. Lunkina watches Gaskell observing her, letting the viewer know that the ballerina is fueled by the spectator’s gaze, which can only be activated by the performer herself. Both women work together, forcing and fusing Lunkina’s performances into Gaskell’s two-dimensional forms.
Douglas Gordon’s seventh exhibition with Yvon Lambert is a kind of retrospective with a wide selection of new and old works, selected to offer visitors the sensory experience of the profound duality of human nature: love and hate, seduction and violence, life and death ... Indeed, this approach recalls the curiosity cabinets of old, where strange and wonderful objects were displayed side by side. It also privileges memory and once again allows us to test the image’s power of attraction and its capacity to transform reality.
