A habitual satirist of the errors and quirks of Uncle Sam, American artist Taryn Simon turns a caustic, offbeat gaze on the political, legal, military and media power of the United States. She gives the hypocrisy of the state a good going over, particularly in the series 'The Innocents', 'An American Index of the Hidden and Unfamiliar' and 'Contraband' – all a pleasure to see as part of her personal exhibition at the Jeu de Paume. Simon's critiques are always backed up by achives, clear thinking and irony.
