The catalogue of the first solo exhibition dedicated to Katerina Jebb, this book presents over a hundred photographs of the artist. The title, Deux ex machina , evokes the effect of the images created from the cold light of a machine to which Katerina Jebb grants the quasi-divine power of creation. Her collaborations with the fashion industry constitute an important part of her work – including her work for the Japanese brand Comme des Garçons or for Christian Lacroix couture. The artist also delves in the themes of portraits and still lifes. The neutral backgrounds isolate the objects and subjects, giving them a solemn appearance. She positions herself at the border of reality and fiction and plays with the fluidity of genres: are we in front of a fashion photograph or a sacred image, are we in front of a human being or a statue?
