The exhibition “Robert Mapplethorpe by Sofia Coppola” opened its doors on November 25th in Paris and will remain open until January 7th, 2012.
The protagonists are precisely two: the photographer from New York, Mapplethorpe, which is the official author of the shots, and Sofia Coppola, director awarded Golden Lion and daughter of art, who cultivates a passion for photography for years and who chose the shots.
The curator of the exhibition is Thaddaeus Ropac, minute and polyglot art dealer with art galleries in Paris and Salzburg. In a press release he does know that the photographs selected for the event from Sofia Coppola were gently transferred from the Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation in New York, following the guidelines of the exhibition “Robert Mapplethorpe: Eye to Eye”, curated by Cindy Sherman in 2003, and “Robert Mapplethorpe curated by David Hockney” in 2005.
The director’s approach is therefore purely aesthetic: the choice fell on black and white shots that include still-lifes as well as images of children, animals and women. Especially the latter. The most significant portraits are those of Paloma Picasso (daughter of art, too), Katherine Cebrian (high-society grand dame of San Francisco) Marisa Berenson (photographed in 1983) and Lisa Lyon (body-builder). The footprint of the exhibition revealed much more melancholic than plastic. If you planned to go to Paris, it certainly worth the ticket price.
