The exhibition gives an overview of the exceptional oeuvre of American photographer Francesca Woodman (1958-1981) who died at a young age. Before committing suicide at the age of twenty-two, Woodman explored themes such as gender, representation, sexuality and corporality. She used photography as an extremely personal means of expression, as if wearing her skin inside out. Woodman’s photographs showcase a range of symbolist and surrealist influences, and in many cases they evoke oppressive feelings.
