World Premiere: Miles Aldridge (after Cattelan) at Reflex Gallery
Reflex Gallery has presented the latest series ‘(after Cattelan)‘ by British Photographer Miles Aldridge at the photography-fair Unseen Amsterdam: a world premiere. For the ‘(after Cattelan)‘ project, Miles Aldridge was invited by the Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan to photograph in his exhibition ‘Not Afraid of Love‘ at the Musee de la Monnaie in Paris, which will run through and to respond to his art. This special collaboration resulted in a series of six pictures, in which Aldridge’s models are having a dialogue with the most famous sculptures by Maurizio Cattelan .
