Gregory Crewdson - Eveningside

VB photographic center, Kuopio

  • 12.6.2024–15.9.2024

Over the past three decades, Gregory Crewdson (b. 1962 ) has been fleshing out a portrait of middle America, that America of picket-fence suburbia gazing wide-eyed at the glimmers of a fading dream which has long since faded and wilted. His cinematographically staged photos have gradually pieced together the fragments of a twilight world.

 

Over the past three decades, Gregory Crewdson (b. 1962) has been fleshing out a portrait of middle America, that America of picket-fence suburbia gazing wide-eyed at the glimmers of a fading dream which has long since faded and wilted. His cinematographically staged photos have gradually pieced together the fragments of a twilight world. His oeuvre stunningly interweave an autobiographical dimension with the portrait of a gloryless America as the setting for a humanity devoured by muted angst while steeped in despondency and ennui. Wan lights and deserted streets are recurring tropes in his works, which are prepared like movie sets to produce photos that quite astonishingly remain images from nonexistent films.

This exhibition brings together works from the three series Cathedral of the Pines, An Eclipse of Moths and Eveningside created between 2012 and 2022. We have juxtaposed this trilogy with smaller-scale photos from an earlier series, Fireflies, made in 1996. Envisaged as a trilogy, they offer unique insight into a decade of creation, and reveal the two central axes – intimate and political – of the universe that has posited Gregory Crewdson as one of the major figures of photography.

The exhibition has been curated exclusively for the VB Photography Center by Jean-Charles Vergne.
