Billboard for Edinburgh: Marine Hugonnier

May 1 - July 24, 2013

Marine Hugonnier was the 20th artist to create a work for Ingleby Gallery's Billboard for Edinburgh public art project.

 

On first glance, Hugonnier's subtle image appears to be simply a black rectangle but on closer inspection clusters of white stars slowly reveal themselves.

 

Hugonnier's image is a found photograph, purchased from a Parisian flea-market. Written on the reverse of the black and white photograph in French was the text "the sky the night we walked on the moon". Whether this is a genuine image of the sky on that historic night in 1969 is unknown.

 

As part of the project, Marine Hugonnier has realised the image as a signed and numbered limited edition archival pigment print. For more details, please visit our books, prints and editions page.
