(March 2011)- Espace La Vallée, the contemporary art gallery at La Vallée Village welcomes photographer Nick Veasey to stage his first ever exhibition in France.
Using X-ray technology, Veasey is an artist of international renown, as much in the art world as among the scientific community. His works are on show in the permanent collections of some of the world’s major museums, ranging from the Victoria & Albert Museum in London to the San Francisco Museum of Contemporary Art.
Veasey is famed for creating works that show the reality of his subjects from the inside and is a fantastic example of the fusion between art and science, a project that, over and above the technological feat, pushes back the boundaries of perception and art.
However, what makes him different from other artists is not only the technique used. Rather than create and transform subjects, Veasey reveals objects and situations in everyday from fashion to domestic arts, including transport vehicles, plants, high technology and even the human skeleton while playing sport, Veasey peels back the layers of everything that is around us.
“To take my work to the home of fashion and show the French the beauty and complexity of garments has long been an ambition of mine. My art is a metaphor for looking beyond the surface, beauty being more than skin deep. As fashion is obsessed with glamour, celebrity and looks it will be interesting to see if the deeper meanings inherent in the exhibition resonate with public.”
The “Fashion X-rayed” exhibition at Espace La Vallée will premiere 15 amazing, unpublished and sometimes disturbing
clichés that look beneath the surface of our daily life by X-ray.
To mark the exhibition Nick Veasey has worked with La Vallée Village to produce a series of limited edition T-shirts. The T-shirts for men (sizes M and L €30), women (sizes Sand M €30) and children (aged 2-4 and 4-6 €15) in 100% cotton and available exclusively at Espace La Vallée throughout the duration of the exhibition.
The exhibition is open at Espace La Vallée from 19 March to 4 September 2011, daily from 10am to 7pm admission is complimentary.
