Francesca Woodman: Absence / Presence

Art, Photography Free
Francesca Woodman. Ausencia / Presencia

The Bernal Espacio gallery hosts 30 images that revolve around absence and presence, taken by American artist Francesca Woodman (Denver 1958 – New York 1981), between 1972 and the year of her death. Despite the photographer's continued presence in her work, she always appears on the brink of disappearance. In her photos, her body dematerializes and melts into archaic and deteriorating scenes. It represents what is to come, what is or what will be. The body (the flesh) is not immutable, nor are the spaces or relationships that we generate. Through her work, Woodman claims the consciousness of the female body and the importance of representation.
