Weinstein Hammons Gallery: The Garbo Figures

The model, posing as Greta Garbo, the actress, the pretender, posing as Pierrot, the character, as photographed by Cecil Beaton, as rendered in glass, a bloodless paradox of volume and light…does not offer grace or harmony or truth…but rather human frailty, the impermanence and bewildering uncertainty of being in the world, the cruel comedy of being lost, placeless, purposeless, faithless, disillusioned …and charmingly indifferent, self possessed, unapologetic.
