9 photos, text panel

 Jochen Gerz
«Photo/Text 51»

Juxtapositions of photos/photo-series and text are among Gerz’ most striking works. In ‘Photo/Text 51’, which consists of 9 identically sized photo-panels and one text panel, his frequently employed serial mode of working that fragments and re-orders space and time becomes particularly clear.
