21 February – 17 March 2018

An exhibition at Huxley-Parlour gallery of work by Valérie Belin focuses on the French photographer’s depictions of the female form throughout her career. The exhibition showcases fifteen large-scale works created between 2001 and 2017, many of which are on display in the UK for the first time.

Exploring issues of identity, surface and artificiality, Belin’s work has often returned to the depiction of the human form at transformative moments. She has photographed bodybuilders and brides, as well as trans women at the very beginning of their journey into becoming female. Works on display in this exhibition will be taken from her series Transsexuals (2001), Mannequins (2003), Brides (2012), Super Models (2015), All Star (2016), and her latest work Painted Ladies (2017).
