Extrait vidéo de l’installation vidéo C19H28O2 (agnès), 2011
Exhibition from january 27th to february 25th 2012
The gallery is pleased to present the first solo exhibition by Dorothée Smith in Paris. This young French artist graduated from the National Photography School in Arles in 2010. For the past year and a half she has been a resident at Fresnoy, the National Studio of Contemporary Arts in Tourcoing.
Dorothée Smith explores the matter of gender and transgender. She does this through her various photography series and her video installation, C19H28O2 (Agnès), which are to be shown at the gallery.
Dorothée Smith is unreserved, her Luminist yet dark approach to the visible portrays the uncertainty of sexual roles. The matter of gender, questioned in philosophy for more than 20 years, is very significant in the intellectual development of her work.
