Boogie-Wall is pleased to present Beyond Self Reflection exhibition featuring Paris- based artist Clémence Vazard whose interdisciplinary artistic practice questions and empowers female representation.
Clémence Vazard draws inspiration to reintroduce the articulation of socially relevant issues within a fine art idiom both from her own experiences and from the intimate stories of the women she gives voices to.
Beyond Self Reflection, will concurrently be on view at the gallery Space in London, opening on 27 August 2020. Vazard work addresses feminist issues with intimate narratives.
“Beyond Self-Reflection'' was born in Mexico 2020, where Clémence asked Mexican women to send her a sentence that they must keep silent in order to be accepted (by society, their families, their colleagues, their spouses, their friends). She received strong, powerful, heartbreaking and moving statements that she wrote in lipstick on the mirror paper stretched over a frame. The works transform tools of oppression into tools of expression.
Her canvas is the mirror and her paint is the lipstick. These two materials represent the I am forever optimistic, 2020, 100cm x100cm
beauty standards imposed on women, and are diverted to express an empowering message.
