Là tout n'est qu'ordre et Beauté is comprised of ten 11" x 14" gelatin silver prints mounted in 16" x 20" overmats. The images have been selected from a series of water(land)scapes produced in the mid 1990s. Published in 1998 in an edition of ten, stored in an archival fabric covered box.
Là tout n'est qu'ordre et Beauté is permeated with the spirit of Baudelaire. The title is part of a refrain from Baudelaire's poem L'invitation au voyage, published in Les Fleurs du Mal. This set of ethereal and evocative photographs mirrors the sense of artistic ennui coupled with acute observation that
characterized Baudelaire's world-view. Just as the words in his poems are never quite what they propose to be, so these photographs are suggestive of another landscape beyond their poetic beauty. The poem I Am a Lake, by the Canadian poet Lorna Crozier, accompanies the images, and suggests an entirely different reading of these seemingly benign images. Angela Grauerholz lives in Montreal. Her work has been exhibited in major shows including Documenta IX, the Carnegie International and the Sydney Biennale.
