I / Not I

Christian Boltanski


As part of LATA’s series “The artist is not always present”, Christian Boltanski donated a previously unseen work – HOMMAGE A SAMUEL BECKETT – for the show. A work inspired by the playwright’s “I. Not I” theatre work. Boltanski’s image was a recreation of Billie Whitelaw’s famous performance where only the actresses’ lips could be seen speaking the fast monologue. InBoltanski’s Boltanski’s own lips are seen.


Other exhibits on display included previously unshown vintage works by Boltanski from the Heart Fine Art collection.
