Cindy Sherman Reimagines Identity for Her Solo Show at Hauser & Wirth

On view until September 16.

The Hauser & Wirth Gallery is currently hosting a solo exhibition by American artist Cindy Sherman. Titled “Cindy Sherman,” the showcase diverges from her usual scenic backdrops, unveiling a daring series of digital collages born from self-portraits, wigs, costumes and makeup.

For over four decades, Sherman has utilized photography and self-portraiture to unravel the intricacies of identity. The 1970s “Untitled Film Stills” series, comprising 70 black-and-white photographs, deconstructed pervasive female stereotypes in advertising and film.

In her latest work, Sherman alters the human face, using costumes and layered collages to distort her own appearance. By seamlessly shifting between photographer and subject, she challenges conventional portraiture boundaries. Her fragmented compositions echo the notion that “identity is a complex, and often constructed, human characteristic that is impossible to capture in a singular picture,” as stated by the gallery.

Complementing the exhibition, Hauser & Wirth has released a curated book featuring Sherman’s series and her insights. The solo show is on view in Zurich until September 16.
