This gallery exhibits a selection of iconic works by Boltanski tracing the evolution of his style. They include The Storeroom of the Children’s Museum I and II, 1989 evoking the fragility of memory and life; Shadows Theatre 1984-1997, whose poetic style conjures up the danse macabre of the Middle Ages and children’s puppet games, and Telephone subscribers, 2000, in which thousands of names listed in telephone directories worldwide present a condensed version of humanity.
