About this title


When Sam Taylor-Johnson (born 1967) climbed the famous mirrored staircase of Chanel's headquarters at 31 rue Cambon, Paris, she did not quite know what to expect. Her destination was Coco Chanel's private apartment on the second floor; her mission, to photograph it. Through the door marked "MADEMOISELLE PRIVÉ," Taylor-Johnson entered Coco Chanel's secret world―exactly as she had left it at her death in 1971. Taylor-Johnson captures the mysterious, eerie presence of Coco's ornaments and furniture: a golden lion, a bejewelled birdcage, leather-bound books, Chinese lacquer screens, crystal chandeliers. Ultimately we are left with a sense of beautiful emptiness―Coco's touch is everywhere, but everywhere is haunted by her absence.

About the Author:

Sam Taylor-Wood graduated from Goldsmiths College in 1990. Her work in photography and film is distinguished by an ironic and subversive use of these media, which centre on the creation of enigmatic situations replete with a latent but explosive energy. Since her first solo exhibition at White Cube in 1995, Taylor-Wood has had numerous solo shows including Fundacio La Caixa, Barcelona, Kunsthalle, Zurich, Louisiana Museum, Humlebæk, Hirshhorn Museum, Washington D.C., Fondazione Prada, Milan, Matthew Marks Gallery, New York, Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam and the Hayward Gallery, London. In 1997 she received the Illy Café Prize for Most Promising Young Artist at the Venice Biennale and was nominated for the Turner Prize. Sam Taylor-Wood lives and works in London.
