Edition Patrick Frey
Through photographic documentation and essay, Altar documents the widespread human urge to elevate secular things to the status of “ritual objects” and combine them to form private altars. Whether they're dust catchers, knickknacks, souvenirs, found objects, meaningful artworks or earnestly and deeply revered objects, they all tell a peculiar story—not in words, but in things—about whoever built the altar.

Commissioned to photograph a contemporary art installation set in a London private house, Marie Angeletti immersed herself in the life of its inhabitants to better capture the complex network that unites the artworks and the collector. The art works of Isa Genzken, Christopher Wool, Franz West or Rosemarie Trockel are mixed with the house social realities and with the world that surrounds them.
