Luc Delahaye

by Frances Guerin
When I first saw Luc Delahaye’s photographs including his much applauded Baghdad IV, 2003, in London at the Photographer’s Gallery in the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize, I was underwhelmed. And seeing his recent exhibition at Galerie Nathalie Obadia, my critique of his photographs seems to remain in tact.  Standing before these massive C-prints, admittedly not in the most flattering of displays, I was left wondering why they have been so celebrated. The gallery press release claims the photographs harbor a series of “formal tensions”, tensions that complicate and fascinate the huge images.... [more]

Paris Texas

  Rosson Crow has had somewhat of a skyrocket career.  Her large, agressive canvases are filled with drips and slashes, garish color, layers of memory, and a nostalgic sense of location.  Mixing Americana with French history, both past and recent, Crow's new work at Galeria Nathalie Obadia (November 28, 2009 - January 23, 2010) is a culture clash that deserves some tending.    Interview with Rosson Crow:  ArtSlant's Nancy Lupo visited with Rosson Crow at her downtown LA studio.  Nancy and Rosson talked about Rosson's influences and working methods, cowboy culture, nostalgic places and her...

          La Galerie Nathalie Obadia est heureuse de présenter, pour la première fois en France, l’oeuvre de l’artiste anglais Michael Landy avec son travail intitulé « H.2.N.Y ». Ce travail s’articule entièrement autour de la performance de l’artiste suisse Jean Tinguely (1925-1991) « Hommage à New York », au cours de laquelle la machine construite dans les jardins du Museum of Modern Art (MOMA), par l’artiste, devait s’autodétruire en 27 minutes (1960).Fasciné par l’oeuvre de Jean Tinguely depuis la découverte de sa rétrospective à la Tate Gallery de Londres, en 1982, Michael Landy va passer d...

Albert Oehlen

by Georgia Fee
  With the rise of punk subculture in the late 70's and early 80's, the Neue Wilde movement flashed through the art schools and studios of artists working in Berlin, Cologne, Düsseldorf, Austria and Switzerland.  Producing a neo-expressionistic revival of painting, and a reactionary stance to then-current practices in conceptual and minimalist genres, the Neue Wilde gave start to the careers of such luminaries as Martin Kippenberger, Jörg Immendorf, Rainer Fetting, Salomé (Wolfgang Ludwig Cihlarz), Leiko Ikemura, and Albert Oehlen.  Since then, Albert Oehlen has dripped, smeared, washed and...
