This body of work, originally shown at the prestigious MEP in Paris, was the artist’s first solo exhibition in a French institution. Webber Gallery are delighted to bring this body of work to Los Angeles, opening in February during Frieze LA.

Overview

Renowned for photographs of the female body that counter stereotypical views of feminine beauty, Senta Simond, brings together an exciting new ensemble of videos and photos in her latest work Dissonance, the centrepiece of which is a diptych combining video and still photography.

In Dissonance, the artist proposes a visual and sound dialogue between two young women who have never met in person: a young Ukrainian dancer and an Irish harpist. Focusing on intimate close-ups and off-kilter snapshots, Simond presents an intimate, mysterious and sensual work that questions our relationship with others. The work, which combines Simond’s images with footage by the two young women, whom she asked to film themselves inspired by her approach, also speaks to ideas of staging and performance, improvisation and chance.
