This month, Alison Jacques Gallery is opening its doors to an extensive presentation of Juergen Teller’s work spanning fashion and fine art.
Teller, the iconic German photographer whose client list includes the likes of Marc Jacobs, Celine, Saint Laurent, Vivienne Westwood, and even Sinéad O’Connor and Nirvana, will be showcasing a collage of his iconic series Go-Sees.
The Go-Sees is a seminal work from Teller’s early career. Created in the photographer’s West London studio, the project was completed in 1999 and explores the concept of the open-ended encounter between the photographer and model, without the prospect of a definite commission. Its concept, similarly to other works by Teller, obliquely questions the fashion industry as a whole.
The series will be presented alongside a pair of more recent projects, Enjoy Your Life! Junior, a recent collaboration with Bubenreuth Primary School in the artist’s hometown in Germany, as well as a visual essay depicting a modern fairy tale about a boy who became a king, A Fairytale About A King.
Go-Sees, Bubenreuth Kids and A Fairytale About A King… runs at Alison Jacques Gallery from 24th November 2017 until 13th January 2018.
