THIS LIMITED EDITION IS SOLD OUT.
Hiroshi Sugimoto is celebrated for his multiple series of black-and-white photographs that explore the themes of time, memory, dreams, and the history of representation. For La Boîte en Bois (The Wooden Box), Sugimoto photographed the University of Tokyo’s replica of Marcel Duchamp’s seminal piece The Bride Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors, Even (The Large Glass) forty-five times with an eight-by-ten camera. Each piece in the edition consists of a set of original negatives, as well as the corresponding black-and-white contact prints between two pieces of glass.
