Christian Boltanski - L'album photographique de Christian Boltanski 1948 - 1956 - Edition Hossman et Sonnabend Press 1972
Edition of 500 copies
Emblematic of his oeuvre, Christian Boltanski’s 1948-1956 Photo Album brings together thirty-two photographs produced by his partner Annette Messager in 1972, in which he plays himself between the ages of four and twelve. This autobiographical and fictional reconstruction in which the adult Boltanski portrays the child Boltanski, produces burlesque effects by the play of scale on his body, which is too big and placed in environments which are too small. Each image is captioned, as in any family album, reinforcing the narrative and emotional dimension of the object.
Very rare - excellent condition - protected by dust cover.
