ME + CO : The Selfies, 1972-2016 – From Andy to Mao Zedong, from film to digital
Most of us would therefore be surprised to learn that Jean Pigozzi—neither an American nor a millennial—has been taking selfies for more than forty years. ‘ME + CO’ brings this unique body of work together for the first time. There are dozens of famous faces, including those of Mick Jagger, Faye Dunaway, Mel Brooks, Andy Warhol, and Lady Gaga, pressed against Pigozzi’s, as well as the belly of a Turkish belly dancer, a busload of Japanese tourists, and a stuffed dog.
Pigozzi’s collected selfies are fascinating and fun, both for their strangely contemporary quality and for their old-school innocence. (Note de l’éditeur) ; postface de Ash Carter, photos en n.b.
