This is the first solo exhibition in a French institution by Swiss artist and fashion photographer Senta Simond, renowned for photographs of the female body that counter stereotypical views of feminine beauty. The exhibition’s centrepiece is a diptych combining video and still photography, in a visual and sound dialogue between two young women who have never met in person: a young Ukrainian dancer and an Irish harpist. Focusing on intimate close-up, off-kilter snapshots, Simond finds nuances in fleeting gestures and facial expressions. The exhibitionwill also include a new series of short films made in an empty space who seems to appear and disappear, creating a ghostly presence.
On view at MEP studio until February 11th.
