Richard Taittinger Gallery presents “Started From The Body” the first solo exhibition in New York by Belgian photographer Charlotte Abramow.
The artist wants to represent women with an inclusive and conscious gaze, moving away from the idea imposed by society that wants the feminine woman, unnatural whose body is a continuous subject to observation and judgment.
The artist says: “I would like to desexualize the so-called female body and show it with a different perspective from an eye of desire, a tool to please the other. I want to show the honesty, fragility, loneliness, humor, and even reverie of young women. With my experience as a young woman growing up, I want to show the look at the evolving body. To make fun of these hypersexualized attributes and instead show curiosity, absurdity, and kindness; a playfulness with our bodies!”
