pigment print on archival matte
paper edition of 100
Inna Babaeva's print is the first in a series of prints with artists in partnership with Progress Report, Furthermore and the Bronx River Art Center.
ABOUT THE WORK:
"The image derives from a number of photographs I had taken in February 2004 of the roof details from the recently constructed Terminal 2E in Charles de Gaulle airport. I was impressed with the architectural elements - the hangar-shape of the building with multiple round windows bringing in the light - and it brought to mind the sculptural installation I had just completed which incorporated similar circular shapes and light. Three months later the terminal building collapsed...
Six years passed, and I was in the re-designed Terminal 2E. The new structure omitted the features that attracted me to the original. It was at that moment that I decided to use my old photographs and make them into series of prints."
