GUILD HALL MUSEUM OPENS ITS SUMMER EXHIBITION SEASON WITH THE INNOCENTS, A SEMINAL WORK BY TARYN SIMON ON VIEW JUNE 17–JULY 30, 2017

The work of Taryn Simon results from rigorous research guided by an interest in systems of categorization and the precarious nature of survival. Turning our attention to the margins of power, where control, disruption, and the contours of its constructedness become visible, she reveals the imperceptible space between language and the visual world—a space in which multiple truths and fantasies are constructed, and where translation and disorientation occur. The technical, physical, and aesthetic realization of her projects often reflects the control and authority that are the very subject of her work. Invoking the form of the archive, Simon imposes the illusion of order on the chaotic and indeterminate nature of her subjects.
