Catalogue Note

With an impressive CV that includes exhibitions at Castelli Gallery in New York and Anthony d’Offay in London (both of whom have handled the present work), Jan Dibbets is a key part of the generation of 1970s conceptual artists. Best known for his conceptual approach to photography, often by tilting a camera around its axis to create multiple perspectives in a single collaged composition, the present work is an excellent example of his original practice. Similar photographic collages from the 1970s are found in the collections of the Tate in London, the Walker in Minneapolis and the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam.
