|ART TALK WITH ELISABETH SAINT-AMAND
Principal, Saint-Amand Landscape Design, LLC
Who is your favorite piece on KiptonART? Why?
Jade Doskow's "Chicago 1983 World's Fair, The Columbian Exposition, Site of Manufacture Liberal Arts Building, Grand Peristyle, and Agriculture Building, View 2, 2009." Jade's works provoke what historian Simon Schama describes in Landscape and Memory as
the persistence of myth. Our physical environment is imprinted with the
legacy of human ingenuity over time, so that derelict sites speak as
much to their moment of glory as to the effects of
decay/corrosion. Jade has developed a body of work dedicated to
World's Fair sites, where few of even the most celebrated constructions
retain any semblance of their original splendor. In the case of her
Chicago 1893 World's Fair photo, only signs of a disturbed ecological
condition remain. The impact is that this disturbed condition is
stunning. I could only describe the scene of golden shrubs as resonant;
the soft massing is melodic in surreal, theatrical light. Read the full interview here.

Bonni Benrubi Gallery
Location: 41 E. 57th Street, 13th Floor, New York, NY 10022
Owner: Bonni Benrubi
KiptonART spoke with Rachel Smith at Bonni Benrubi Gallery:
What message, as a gallery, do you want people to leave your shows/gallery with?
We are interested in pushing the medium and we want people to see
how far photographers are taking their medium. We want them to
experience new ways of seeing within the context of what is new and
what is historical. We always have a separate room with examples of
everyone we represent so our audience and client can get a sense of who
we are, and therefore who the artist is. We are accessible and are
always available to show work and add to the experience of seeing the

Art Review: La Subversion des Images - Surrealism, Photography, Film
le Centre Pompidou, Paris
by Kevin Gotkin
"La Subversion des Images" compliments itself on bringing together
"more than 350 works, some hundred documents and a dozen films," but it
should; the collection is extensive. Curators Quentin Bajac, Clément
Chéroux, Guillaume Le Gall, Michel Poivert, and Philippe-Alain Michaud
cut a particular cross-section of Surrealist art, but one that
nonetheless opens many an exciting new door. Film and photography were
not just tools for the Surrealists, as the exhibit discovers. They
were essential to sculpting and advancing it. Showcasing examples of
Surrealist film and photography rather than particular artists, the
exhibit still manages to squeeze in the likes of Man Ray, Hans Bellmer,
and Claude Cahun alongside virtually unknown bodies of work.
