poster for Ariane Lopez-Huici and Marilia Destot "Fragmented Body"

This event has ended.

In a special joint exhibition, French-born and New York-based photographers Ariane Lopez-Huici and Marilia Destot present a visual dialogue exploring the fragmentation of the human body from two different perspectives. The artists first collaborated on the black-and-white documentary The Body Close Up, a retrospective of Lopez-Huici’s work from the 1970s to 2008, made by Destot.
In this exhibition, Lopez-Huici’s arresting black-and-white portrait of Priscille, a non-professional nude model, contrasts with Destot’s large Variations for Two, a polyptych of two female dancers performing a simple movement. Lopez-Huici’s powerful full-body portraits are a strong statement about the model’s identity, while Destot’s work examines human movement over space and time by fragmenting the figures and rendering their bodies abstract. She explores the photographic medium with a captivating installation of forty-two photographs: a subjective vision and experience of time, space, and memory.
