Fresh off last week’s opening of his Hong Kong solo exhibition, Raft (covered), David La Chapelle is set to unveil an even more unorthodox body of work of installation-based work. Opening at Lever House Art Collection tomorrow, June 2nd, From Darkness to Light will utilize photography in three distinct ways – collage, stickers, and paper chain. Set a little closer to home in New York City, the native photographic icon this this time draws inspiration from “the simplicity of childhood endeavors taught in early art lessons, re-imagined through the lens of adulthood”. The youthful approach juxtaposed with sexually explicit photographs epitomizes the innocence lost with age, each piece composed of elementary methods yet presented in a contemporary design aesthetic.
