Sherrie Levine - African Masks

 

"The 24 parts series of African Masks, "After Walker Evans", by Sherrie Levine is accompanied, in resonance with Galerie Didier Claes, by a selection of african masks and sculptures."

 

Jablonka Maruani Mercier Gallery is pleased to present for the first time American artist Sherrie Levine’s (1947, Pensylvania) work in Its Brussels location. « African Masks After Walker Evans », the numbered series of 24 photographs will be staged next to a selection of African masks from Didier Claes – among them a very rare Kwele, Gabon - . A « resonance » between the photographer’s work and the culture It portrays. An exhibition that will be held both in Didier Claes’ gallery (some 10 photographs of masks will be presented) and at the JMM Gallery, echoing the statues of the same ethnic group. A premiere taking place at the same time as Bruneaf (Brussels Non European Art Fair) event, dedicated to primitive arts, tribal, African and Oceanian.

 

Levine’s series, a keywork of postmodernism

Sherrie Levine received widespread acclaim in 1979 for her series «After Walker Evans» in which she re-photographed 24 of Walker Evan’s photographs out of an exhibition catalogue, depicting the impoverished rural population in Alabama at the end of the 1920s. Levine’s series is recognized as a key work of postmodernism, raising issues of authenticity, authorship, and commodification with particular acuity and persuasiveness.

 

A work based on the comissioned work of 1935 for the Museum of Modern Art

35 years later, in a further series after Walker Evans, Sherrie Levine addresses similar issues with new layers of relevance. This time, the artist chose her motifs from an extensive collection of over 400 photographs of African artworks that Walker Evans was commissioned to produce in 1935 by the Museum of Modern Art in New York. This comprehensive project made a significant contribution to the reception of African art in the western aesthetic canon. Selecting only masks for her series, Sherrie Levine hones in on the question of the identity of the artwork creator.
