What do nature, the Stasi, Hitler, Louis Vuitton bags and the deadly sins have in common?

The marriage of myth and zeitgeist are reflected in the works of the artists shown at Miami 2006, which include Tim White-Sobieski, Maslen & Mehra, Lukas Maximilian Hüller, Daniel & Geo Fuchs, Douglas Busch, Liza Nguyen and Svein Fannar Johannson. Nothing can be revealed yet – this too constitutes an aspect of myth - uncertainty. All that can be revealed is that we will be premiering the latest work of Tim White Sobieski in a curated show by Paco Barragan. Similarly, new works can be seen Daniel & Geo Fuchs, Maslen & Mehra and Lukas Maximilian Hüller.

As Chris Townsend so succinctly put it: ‘Can you imagine the wonder with which the first man, cresting a ridge, saw the landscape laid out below and before him? We know enough to know that there was no “first man”, that there was not, suddenly, a conscious being, equipped with language, memory, a sense of self and a sense of time’. Yet, what pervades British/Australian duo Maslen and Mehra’s large-format photographs is a sense of seeing something for the first time. Polished mirrored silhouettes of urban men are placed or one could say displaced in different contexts. Is man part or apart of nature? In their latest work which will we premiered in Miami, we are confronted with a pair of ibex in gridlock in front of the Louvre.

The Austrian artist Lukas Maximilian Hüller rediscovers an entirely different, yet also seemingly archaic concept: the seven deadly sins. In his series of panoramic photographs displaying opulent scenarios realised with the Belgian scenograph Etienne Tombeux, he confronts us with the question of whether the medieval canon of sins can be contextualised in a contemporary setting.

Daniel & Geo Fuchs, in their latest work entitled ‘STASI – secret rooms’ (recently acquired by the Elton John Collection), focus on the legacy of the GDR regime. Their photographs of the machinery and relicts of the former East German Secret police are beautifully portrayed, oddly, coldly aesthetic. In their Toy series toys are manipulated and reflect the political context with sharp irony.

Tim White-Sobieski’s latest work follows the opening of his solo show at Louis Vuitton in Paris. ‘Icons’ allowed Sobieski as well as other artists such as Zaha Hadid and Sylvie Fleury, to reinterpret the label’s most prominent fashion icons.
