WINNER OF THE 2015 BMW RESIDENCY AT THE MUSEE NICÉPHORE NIÉPCE
Alinka Echeverría, the 2015 BMW artist in residence, is working on a project that examines photography, from the reproduction to the dissemination of images, based on Nicéphore Niépce and his founding act. Interested in how women are depicted in the history of art and photography, she forges historical, technical and philosophical ties between the museum’s collections and ceramics. Using the vase as a symbol of femininity and a vector of mythological allegories, Echeverría looks at how various image reproduction methods have determined the way society views women.
Exhibition curator: François Cheval.
Exhibition produced by BMW Arts & Culture with support from the Musée Nicéphore Niépce.
