Adrienne Martyn: Originals and Replicas

5 September – 9 October 1990

Adrienne Martyn will be showing a portfolio of ten silver gelatin prints entitled Originals and Replicas. Photographed in Paris in May 1990, the prints are Martyn's response to the sculptural forms which she encountered by chance in the courtyard of the Ecole Nationale des Beaux Arts and in the Louvre. Using a straight-forward documentary approach to capture what she saw, Martyn establishes an intriguing dilemma; is the photograph an original work in itself, or is it simply a reproduction of a work of art?
