About the Artwork

Candida Höfer is known for her images of empty interiors of libraries, museums, palaces and theaters, focusing on the cultural spaces free from human presence. Part of the artist’s latest exhibition at Sean Kelly Gallery, Candida Höfer in Mexico, "Teatro Degollado Guadalajara III" expands her signature attention to Mexican Baroque interiors.

Spaces may or may not invite the image—if they do, they mostly do it with their spatial layers of time… It is then the image that takes the place of the space; the image in its own right."

The self-imposed subject restrictions evident in her project are both cultural and formal in nature. The Baroque interiors of the Mexican "Teatro Degollado Guadalajara" provides a “formal portrait of the social itself”.
