Patti Smith's Paris Portrait
from the article,
"Land 250" is a major solo exhibition of Smith's visual work drawn from pieces created between 1967 and 2007. Hence the exhibition is something of a portrait of the artist during those years. Accompanied by large worn leather chairs it attempts to recreate the atmosphere of Smith's New York loft and strives to provide insight into her lyrical, spiritual and poetic universe. Her expressive voice serves to magnify the installations created specifically for the exhibition: a synthesis of photographs, drawings films and favorite objects.
