Francesca Woodman: On Being an Angel
Thu 24.8. - Sun 15.10.
The American photographer Francesca Woodman (1958–1981) created a world of intimate and emotional pictures during her intensive life – prior to her death at only 22.
Woodman’s photographs are explorations into corporeality, gender and sexuality. She used herself and her friends as models to create portraits where the persons are often partly hidden or merging into the surroundings. The photographs take the viewer to surprising locations such as abandoned buildings or surreal spaces created using mirrors and glass.
On Being an Angel consists of around 100 photographs and video works from Francesca Woodman’s near five year career as an artist.
The exhibit has been produced by Moderna Museet.
