Fascinated by Rodin's energy; his dazzling sensual vigour and revelation of human passions, Alain Kirili has chosen a series of photographs of Balzac shot in Meudon by that champion of Pictorialism, Edward Steichen, and published in Camera Work in 1911. Finding in them a clear parallel with Rodin's masterpiece, Kirili is exibiting a group of six sculptures from his series Segou and Totems.
