Max Snow “The Lady Of Shalott” @ Colette, ParisJuxtapoz // Tuesday, 08 Jan 2013
Max Snow, born in 1984, hails from New York. After numerous shows, both group and solo, he presents his new exhibition The Lady Of Shalott, at colette in Paris. The works are inspired by the poem by Alfred Tennyson. Both the poem and the show serve to raise questions about society and the artist's role, responding to the conflicting commands to create art inspired by the world and also to live in it. The longstanding connection between weaving and fate implies that the ultimate destiny of the lady, as both artist and individual in society, is to see the world only through her own filters. There is also the embedded allusion to Plato's allegory of the Cave where the world is a shadow play of ideal forms outside and beyond human perception. —colette
