Saint Laurent presents ‘Self 01 Daido Moriyama’, an exhibition curated by Anthony Vaccarello. The intention of the project is to capture different aspects of the Saint Laurent personality, underlining the complexity of various individuals through the eyes of artists selected by Anthony Vaccarello. It represents the freedom of self-expression without censorship, and conveys many different facets of the Saint Laurent attitude. Creative disciplines across art and fashion reinforce and fuel the concept of diversity, individuality, and self-confidence through a lens free from pretense and hypocrisy.
This project is an artistic commentary on society while emphasizing the core values of Saint Laurent. Self is formed by a heady mixture of attraction, ambivalence and mystery generated by photographers, artists, and filmmakers who have come together to make a confrontational statement.
Daido Moriyama is the first artist with whom Saint Laurent worked with for this project, his work will be presented in Paris at the Palais Royal from the 9th till the 11th of November during Paris Photo. The exhibition curated by Anthony Vaccarello will be presented in a light-installation accessible to the public at the Galerie d’Orléans courtyard, in front of Palais Royal garden.
