WASHINGTON, DC.- The Hirshhorn announces a
new
installation of work by Guido van der Werve (Dutch, b. Papendrecht,
Netherlands,
1977) and Hiroshi Sugimoto (Japanese, b. Tokyo, 1948). On view at the
Museum for
the first time is Van der Werve’s “Nummer Negen (#9) The Day I Didn’t
Turn with
the World” (2007), a recent acquisition, which is paired with five works
from
Sugimoto’s “Seascapes” series. Sugimoto’s works are drawn from a
grouping
acquired for the Museum by The Glenstone Foundation on the occasion of
the
artist’s 2005-2006 retrospective, co-organized by the Hirshhorn. Seen
together,
the pieces quietly create synergy, harmoniously exploring concepts of
time,
space and solitude, while highlighting the formal and conceptual
interplay
between cinema and photography.
