Lutz Bacher, MATRIX 242
Since Lutz Bacher’s first MATRIX exhibition in 1993, the artist has become a leading figure in contemporary art. Recent exhibitions include a retrospective at MoMA PS1 and the 2012 Whitney Biennial. MATRIX 242 presents Bien Hoa, an important but rarely seen series from 2006–07.
Bien Hoa juxtaposes enlargements of photographs taken by a soldier in Vietnam named Walter, unearthed by the artist at a salvage store, with the versos of the originals which reveal the soldier/photographer’s handwritten annotations.
