Francesca Woodman at Victoria Miro

22 September 2014

Author : reba




In her short career photographer Francesca Woodman produced an extraordinary body of work – over 800 photographs – acclaimed for its singularity of style and range of innovative techniques. London’s Victoria Miro gallery will be showing a solo exhibition of her work until the 4th of October

This exhibition will consider the recurring themes within Woodman’s work, the abstract geometrical forms which would often reappear within her photographs. Woodman’s practice is often discussed in terms of its surreal and symbolic imagery, but her work was grounded in a sophisticated understanding of form. Her photography exemplified strong compositional motifs, and the repetitive, regular shape of the zigzag, with its strong lines and angles, was a form she used in images of disparate subjects.

Passing away at the tragically young age of 22 in 1981, Woodman left behind her a body of work much greater than her age. This exhibition will be sure to present us with a thoughtful reflection of her work.
