Cindy Sherman at the Vuitton Foundation: The Self-Portrait for Life
- The exhibition "Cindy Sherman" brings together 170 works by the artist - from 1975 to 2020
- Cindy Shermanthe photographer, is the only actress in his pictures. She works alone, has never taken a model. It's always her and never the same in every photo.
- The result: a confusing, surprising, amusing work of art.
- The principle of her work: she embodies an image of America by disguising herself by placing herself in a set very worked out and significant of the message she wants to stage
- She thus composes fakes that are truer than the real.
- Hiding behind her disguises, Cindy Sherman is unrecognizable in every photo. She is sometimes a very young woman, an overweight 50-year-old woman, a sophisticated middle-class New Yorker, or sometimes in recent photos a virile man like Stallone.
