Antoine D'agata Anticorps
|Publisher||Ed. Xavier Barral|
‘Anticorps’ comprises an exhibition at Le Bal, Paris, and this book contains some 2400 photographs by Antoine d’Agata, infamous for his work dealing with addiction, sex, prostitution, obsession and other taboos. A testament to the enormity and variety of his prolific output, it reflects a language that has gradually become darker, more abstract and abrupt. Curators Fannie Escoulen and Bernard Marcadé grapple with this mass of raw, uncompromising subject matter to discover its implications, finding a man who imbues extreme experiences of existence with revelatory power. It is both haunting and riveting, from spectral encounters to stark urban landscapes.
