"We look at a page cataloging a poppy from Italy, a snapdragon from Spain, and baby’s breath from Kenya. In 2013, these three species were united to witness an agreement between the U.S. and Switzerland, requiring that the European country send the names of all Americans with Swiss bank accounts to the IRS—a measure taken to combat tax evasion." - @artsy visiting “Paperwork and the Will of Capital” show by Taryn Simon at the Gagosian Gallery

"Taryn Simon: Paperwork and the Will of Capital" closes tomorrow, May 19 at Gagosian Athens. Make sure you see it before it's too late!

With "Paperwork and the Will of Capital," Simon addresses the instability of executive decision-making and the reliability and endurance of records, as a reflection on the precarious nature of survival. As time advances, so do these artifacts transform, revealing mutable versions of themselves. Read more via the link in our bio!

“Like specimens under a microscope, [Simon’s photographs] are visual testimony to an experiment revealing an alternative view of global commerce, immigration, and desire.” - Kate Fowle

Multidisciplinary artist Taryn Simon’s conceptual 2016 work “Paperwork and the Will of Capital” is celebrated as a commentary on the Stagecraft of Power as it is perceived by the artist. In an exemplary display of the subtle, disarming suggestion dictated by floral design, Simon eloquently recreates bouquets which were displayed during summits between powerful world leaders throughout the 20th century. Simon’s still life photographs of these arrangements provide the vantage point of being a wallflower amongst conversations between powerful world leaders; bearing witness to significant global events that otherwise feel may far out of our reach.
Taryn Simon’s “Paperwork and the Will of Capital” is on view now at Gagosian Athens through May 19th. Click the link in bio or stop by our Madison Avenue shop to view this and our full selection of Taryn Simon publications.

Today we are celebrating Taryn Simon, as part of Women's History Month.

Based in New York, Simon is a multidisciplinary conceptual artist. Her practice involves extensive research, in projects guided by an interest in systems of categorization and classification.

Large-scale photographs from Simon's series "Paperwork and the Will of Capital" are currently on view at Gagosian Athens. In these works, Simon considers the stagecraft of power via the accords, treaties, and decrees drafted to influence systems of governance and economics. In archival images of the signings of these documents, powerful men flank flower arrangements; Simon recreated and photographed these arrangements, pairing them with texts that explain each event, underscoring the ways in which power is created, performed, marketed, and maintained. To find out more, click on the link in our bio.

Following the critically acclaimed debut of “An Occupation of Loss” in New York in 2016, Simon presents its second iteration in London next month. “An Occupation of Loss,” co-commissioned by @artangel_ldn and @parkavearmory, will open on April 17, 2018.

Gagosian is pleased to present large-scale photographs from the series "Paperwork and the Will of Capital" by Taryn Simon.
Simon is a multidisciplinary conceptual artist whose work spans photography, sculpture, and performance. Her research-driven approach has produced such impactful bodies of work as "The Innocents" (2002); "An American Index of the Hidden and Unfamiliar" (2007); "Contraband" (2010); and the web-based "Image Atlas" (2012); as well as "The Picture Collection" (2013); "Birds of the West Indies" (2013–14); and "Black Square" (2006–), an ongoing project about the consequences of human inventions. For Simon, photography has always been a vehicle for larger conceptual ideas. Paired with text, her photographs reveal the structures behind controlling systems, from ancestry and borders to botany and diplomacy. Between text and image, a blur occurs and each is altered by the other, again and again, back and forth. For opening reception info and the read the full press release, click on the link in our bio.
