International photo artist Jessica Craig-Martin surprises her audiences with her offbeat glimpses of our consumer society. She holds up a mirror that -unlike the usual glossy magazines- reveals snippets of the reality lurking beneath the glamour of a jet-set party... as we say at eternal-optimist: All those small details that lie beneath the surface! It is always amazing when reality reveals itself in all its "glory".
Craig-Martin's fame has gone far beyond her hometown, New York. She has made headlines with international exhibitions ranging from Madrid to Tokyo. Her first show in Switzerland features a selection of seminal works created over a period of several years. It's title "Standard Excess" is typical of the artist's witty and intentionally ambiguous on the world of VIPs.
