For her first solo show at the Galerie Christophe Gaillard from October 13 to November 19 2011, Isabelle Le Minh will present a set of recent pieces, most of which were produced especially for the exhibition.
A graduate of the École Nationale Supérieure de la Photographie of Arles, the artist started out by working on the photographic representation of the real before extending her field of investigation a few years ago to the question of the image and to the domain of contemporary art. Since then, she has been conceiving and producing resolutely conceptual pieces that play on words, signs and cultural codes, integrating tributes, quotes and détournements in a more or less overt fashion. Le Minh had her first major exhibition at the Wharf, Centre d’Art Contemporain de Basse-Normandie, in January 2009. More recently, her work was shown at the Salon de Montrouge and in a group show at the Galerie Christophe Gaillard last January, “The Title as the curator’s art piece”.
