Christophe Guye Galerie presents its upcoming exhibition, the first European solo exhibition of the highly celebrated young talent Lina Scheynius. Documentary and momentary, Scheynius’ world of images is a deeply personal and frank visual diary wholly representational of the current zeitgeist. By way of a narrative fluidity her images transport the onlooker into the artist’s intimate world, sharing some of the most private details of her life. A hot, to-be-watched talent, Scheynius rose to fame after stepping into the footsteps of Jürgen Teller to do a 52-week photo column for Die Zeit, Germany’s most influential weekly newspaper.
Just a few streets from where she died in north London, and in the summer when she would have turned 30, a very personal story of Amy Winehouse is being told. Co-curated at the Jewish Museum in Camden by her brother Alex and sister-in-law Riva, “Amy Winehouse: A Family Portrait” looks at how her childhood hopes and dreams became reality.
