Christian Boltanski in conversation with Rikke Hansen,
(London: Tate Modern)
French artist Christian Boltanski thinks of himself as a painter but is best known for his photographic installations. A photographer who often re-photographs found images, including family snapshots, he associates photography with death and describes himself as a cadaver merchant.
For the inaugural Folkestone Biennial of 2008, Boltanski created a moving sound piece, Whispers, comprising readings from the private love letters of soldiers and their lovers from the First World War.
