“I am half-sick of shadows” said The Lady of Shalott - Alfred Lord Tennyson, 1842. Max Snow's newest work takes its title from Tennyson's poem: a lyric ballad adapting Arthurian Legend. Cursed to remain alone in her island fortress, The Lady of Shalott is unable to participate in the world except to view its distorted reflection in her mirror and weave those images on her loom. Both the poem and the show serve to raise questions about society and the artist's role, responding to the conflicting commands to create art inspired by the world and also to live in it. The Lady of Shalott will on view until February 2, 2013, at Colette, 213 rue Saint-Honoré 75001 Paris
