Item description for Candida Hofer: Opera De Paris by Gerard Mortier...

Candida Hfer: Paris Opera

Candida Hfer's works have something timeless about them, and opera is perhaps the most timeless cultural delight. Having dedicated a photographic series to the cathedrals of knowledge that are libraries, Hfer in her most recent cycle captures opera houses, the palaces of performing arts. Hfer's earlier pictures of public spaces---libraries, lecture halls, museums, meeting rooms---forever devoid of people, made us sense the presence of those absent. Her opera photographs take us one step beyond: empty foyers, orchestras, stages, wings, and boxes make us imagine both theprotagonists---performers and audience---and the fictitious figures, plots, and places that populate these venues during a night at the opera. In her most recent publication Candida Hfer portrays two Paris opera houses that are exemplary for their age and time: the neoclassicist Palais Garnier (1875), original Phantom of the Opera site, and the modern-style Opra Bastille (1989).
