Francesca Woodman exhibition Zig Zag opens at Victoria Miro from 9 September - 4 October

Victoria Miro’s Mayfair gallery space is set to exhibit a selection of Francesca Woodman’s archival pigment prints. The exhibition entitled Zig Zag considers geometric forms as its on-going theme. The photographs juxtapose disparate subjects to create visual puns and poetic links. They can also be read as a whole allowing the viewer to track a Zig Zag throughout the exhibition. We recommend visiting in order to see a wide array of photographic techniques.

Francesca Woodman was born in 1958. She lived and worked in New York until her untimely death in 1981. During her short career she produced over 800 photographs which are widely acclaimed for their style, range of techniques, and consideration of the self and female body. Her estate has been previously exhibited at world-renowned institutions including New York’s Guggenheim, Rotterdam’s Kunsthal and The Photographers Gallery in London. Her works are held in many international public and private collections. 

Zig Zag is open from 9th September – 4th October. For more information on Francesca Woodman’s estate and forthcoming exhibition please follow the link.

John Jones has had the pleasure to frame a selection of Francesca Woodman’s gelatine silver prints and some of her archival sketches for the exhibition. Our Design Consultant chose to frame Woodman’s prints in simple, clean conservation grade wooden profiles to let the photographs speak for themselves.
