Archway Gallery presents Féminitude, A Path Towards Femininity...,
featuring photographs by Isabelle Perreau. The exhibition is part of the
city-wide ‘Participating Spaces’ celebrating the FotoFest 2018 Biennial and
will be on view March 3 – April 5, 2018. 
Now in its 20th year, FotoFest is the United States’ largest and
longest-running international photography festival.  

 

The artist will be on hand to
visit with guests during the exhibition opening reception on Saturday, March 3,
2018 from 5 – 8 p.m. at the gallery
with an Artist Talk at 6:30 p.m.

 

One is not born, but rather becomes a woman. (On ne nait
pas femme, on le devient.
) ~Simone de Beauvoir.

 

Perreau explains, “Like
Simone de Beauvoir, and from my own experience, I believe that feminine gender,
as an aspect of one's identity, is gradually acquired; it is a metamorphosis
that occurs throughout a woman's life, encompassing body, mind and spirit. Witnessing
my daughter's transformation from child to woman, lover, and mother has been an
essential part of my own feminine journey; it has been a fascinating experience
which I explore through these images.”



Essential to the artist’s creative
approach is the mutual degree of trust established with the subjects she
photographs. Accepting and welcoming the artist into life’s intimate moments is
key in capturing that ephemeral “Féminitude” conveyed by the photographs.

 

Isabelle Perreau was born in France, in the Loire Valley. She studied philosophy
at the University of Paris X then followed
her natural curiosity and passion
for travel by flying off to South America where she lived for 20 years
establishing a career as a psychoanalyst.

 

Perreau’s continued travels eventually led her to Texas and this is where  photography became her chosen mode of
expression. The artist’s camera has become her companion on innumerable
journeys across the planet.  In 2016 she
had her first solo exhibition at the Alliance Francaise de Houston, and she
became a resident artist at Archway Gallery.

Lauren Chapman "Metamorphosis" Opening at Redbud Gallery


Artist Statement

I create sculptures that ask the observer to question what they see.  I start with natural components, such as driftwood, and add character elements, like carved faces, or industrial elements to them. I disguise faces on objects and in places where they do not belong. I create scenes and objects that evoke emotions, be they joy, curiosity, or angst.  This combines my interests in nature and the human psyche into a work that draws in the observer, the natural, the human, and the industrial with one another. 

Often, a hidden element in the work causes the observer to do a double-take upon noticing the familiar in an unfamiliar context. This awareness (and initial lack thereof) informs my work: I want the observer to become more conscious of their surroundings. Any object may be hiding an interesting, unnoticed world in plain sight. My work asks the observer to notice the worlds before us that often become obscured by our supposed familiarity and to take them in with the wonder of one who sees it for the first time.

The exhibit will be on display from March 3 through March 31, 2018.

Opening Reception: Margin and Center

Exploring the edges of identities, geographies, disciplines and ideas.

Opening Reception from 5:30-8:00pm
Curator and Artists' Talks at 6:00pm
Exhibition on view: March 9 - April 29, 2018

Houston Center for Photography presents For Freedoms: Margin and Center

Margin and Center brings together several artists from around the world whose work explores the edges of identities, geographies, disciplines and ideas, and identifies—through various modes of seeing—physically, psychologically and culturally constructed separations that determine where we are supposed to go and who we are supposed to be. These divisions take the form of walls, bodies, histories, or, as when writer bell hooks—whose writing inspired the title of this exhibition—grew up in rural Kentucky, the train tracks that divided her town between black and white.
