The Way She Looks

At this year’s edition of Paris Photo Christophe Guye Galerie presents a selection of female artists only, all of whom work with different forms of self-portraiture or with portraiture of female figures, offering unique artistic expressions to capture their own view of themselves as well as of other women. We will exhibit artists such as Jun Ahn (KR), Rinko Kawauchi (JP), Brigitte Lustenberger (CH), Marianne Marić (FR), Lina Scheynius (SWE), Emma Summerton (AU), Dominique Teufen (CH) and A Mi Yoon (KR), who through the female body and the photographic settings they construct, all take control of its representation. Their portraits – whether in the form of performative self-portraiture, performative portraiture of other women or as a representation of their own selves – hinge on the act of looking, but the significance of their works lies in their articulation of what it means to be ‘seen’ as a woman and what they choose to do with that knowledge. With more than 20 exhibited works, we show how these artists explore their identities and use their works as a vehicle to achieve self-expression by negotiating the gap between seeing and being seen.
