Celebrating Marian Faust’s 20-year collaboration with Martin Margiela the exhibition “The Archive Box” is soon to come to a close in Milan. The exhibition, which features archive boxes filled with reflective images, is taking place at Galleria Carla Sozzani until February 11, 2018.
Each archive contains a unique selection of 10 images of Marina Faust’s collaboration with Margiela. The images are re-appropriations of her photo series done on assignment between 1990 and 2008. She looks at her material again today with a fresh and new point of view. The sources are photo prints, negatives, contact sheets, Polaroids, photocopies and digital materials. Marina Faust was the only photographer having worked with Margiela in his whole career, which, besides other considerations, makes her archive unique.
Marina Faust began working at the age of 18 as a photographer in Vienna. Between 1974 and 1975, she collaborated with Magnum Photos. In the 1980s, she exhibited her work at Galerie Agathe Gaillard in Paris, France. In 1995, Faust began working with other media, including collages, videos and objects.
The exhibition is on view through February 11, 2018, at Galleria Carla Sozzani, Corso Como 10, Milan, Italy.
