It’s the unveiling of the thin layer between public and private life moments which often characterises Scherer’s work and is continued in the pieces titled “Untitled (Kate)” here. Different pages from one single photography book with images of Kate Moss taken by Mario Testino and published by Taschen are tightly framed in wood and plexiglass boxes.
In the artist book “New York – July 26, 2012” images of Emma Watson taken by a Paparazzi showing the actress and activist visiting an art supply store and interacting both with the vendor and the person who is taking the pictures.
While providing us with a window into joy and glamour of a celebrity’s private life, the show could be read in Guy Debord’ terms as well; as a critique of the society of spectacle, where the participants are so absorbed by virtual reality, social networks and Hollywood dramas.
