Time Out says

This large-scale exhibition focuses on 50 years of work by one of France’s most prominent contemporary artists, Christian Boltanski. Boltanski is best known for his photographic installations, in which the artist explores with his own memory of life and death. His career began in the 1960s and 1970s, when he took pictures of everyday documents such as passports, newspaper pictures, school pictures and other personal mementos. In the 1980s, Boltanski further explored the depths of this medium by producing installations and utilizing light to create new expressions behind the pictures. By appropriating these mementos, the artist was exploring the power that photography and documentation had in our lives. This earned him international acclaims, and since then, he has been producing and showing his works from around the world.
