Item description for Alejandra Figueroa: Capitus by Alejandra Figueroa...

Who has their first major solo show at the Louvre? A contemporary photographer reinterpreting classical sculpture and painting in intimate portraits: a nun's clasped hands, a nude's shielded torso. Mexican-born Alejandra Figueroa lives in Paris, and photographs the city's art as though taking particularly elegant snapshots of particularly elegant friends. Following her unusual debut, the work included here has been exhibited at high-powered venues including the Musee d'Orsay. And the Vatican. Most meta-art (think Sherrie Levine) wouldn't make it past the Pope's guards, but Figueroa's is, as Philippe Sollers writes, "white magic." At 368 pages, this small but monumental publication traces a line back though civilization via the physiognomy of over 330 lively subjects in stone, wood, metal and paint--all in magnificent tritone printing.
