Photo-etching by Charlotte Colbert based on her series "In and Out of Space", which rendered affectionate homage to Stanley Kubrick to commemorate the fifteenth anniversary of his death.
“As opposed to sending an astronaut into space I wanted to send the astronaut into our ownpast. I was interested in the juxtaposition between the astronaut, symbol of the future, symbol of Man’s power to surpass, and this totally decayed building of faded grandeur.”
- Charlotte Colbert
The pictures were displayed on Picadilly for Frieze Art Fair 2014.
“Charlotte Colbert’s beautiful images capture our frailty trapped in the bubble of our own existence.”
