This is Sarfati’s third solo show at Yossi Milo.
On Hollywood depicts the women lured to Los Angeles by dreams of Hollywood success. The focus is on the landscape and the reality these women face in the LA environment. Sarfati nods to Guy Debord’s “psycho-geographical wanderings”—ie how our geographical surroundings affect our behavior and emotion. Sarfati wandered in LA taking this photos of street corners, parking lots and other run-of-the-mill spots. She then went back to these locations. Both the people and places are the fringes of society.
Sarfati is set to have a solo show in 2014 at Bibliothèque Nationale de France. She has previously had solo shows at numerous European institutions. If her work seems familiar you may have seen it at the Museum of Modern Art, Los AngelesCounty Museum of Art or the Brooklyn Museum of Art—among others.
