Exhibitions at SAGE Paris
Claus Goedicke photographs objects that are as elementary as they are essential for our everyday life—light bulb, soap, band aid, hammer, pencil... — and basic foodstuffs: bread, butter, eggs, carrots, meat. Things that we see and hold in our hands almost everyday, but that are so commonplace that we barely notice them.

The work of PAOLO GIOLI is very innovative: a brilliant artist, he is continuously developing new protocols in order to create truly original images.
PAOLO GIOLI is an explorer, an experimenter searching for new means that will help him to create images that always surprise. Thus the series of 16 antique statues from the Vatican Museum presented here that explore the limits of colour photography: instead of photosensitive paper, GIOLI has used, for the shoot, a plate smeared with a phosphore… more
