Currently on view in our Paris is an exhibition of new paintings by #IlyaKabakov. Considered by curator Robert Storr as ‘one of the great story-tellers of our era’, Ilya Kabakov is known to have fundamentally rethought the nature of the ‘conceptual’, especially in the way he explores the potential of narration through his practice of ‘painted collage’. In the series ‘Two Times’ (2014-2016) he merges visual fragments of soviet imagery with those of seventeenth century Baroque paintings such as #Caravaggio’s, ‘The Burial of Saint Lucy’ (1608).
