arles 2019 - les rencontres de la photographie

avignon, collection lambert

Vik Muniz integrates Arles 2019 – Les Reencontres de la Photographie festival, part of the Grand Arles Express section, in Avignon, France. The artist presents at the Lambert Collection the Imaginária series, which comprises 15 photographs featuring saints as depicted by great artists, from Simon Vouet’s Saint Agnes to Philippe de Champaigne’s Saint Augustine and Jose de Ribeira’s Saint Sebastian. In this new series, Muniz continues his exploration of the fascination with saints through the history of their representation in art and, consequently, the relationship between art works and the idea of the sacred.
