Jan Groover, Untitled, 1985 © Musée de l’Elysée, Lausanne – Jan Groover archives
From September 18, 2019 to January 05, 2020
This exhibition looks back for the first time over the life’s work of Jan Groover (1943-2012), the American photographer whose personal collection was added to the Musée de l’Elysée’s collections in 2017. Based on a selection of archives from her personal collections, the exhibition will evoke not only the artist’s years in New York but also her years in France – a less known part of her career. The exhibition displays the results of the considerable research into the collection conducted by the museum – from the perspective both of conservation (in-depth analyses of processes and photographic materials, restoration processes) as well as historical documentation (contextualising the work and its critical and institutional reception).
