The MEP Studio, space dedicated to emerging creation, is pleased to present the young British photographer and video artist Rachel Fleminger Hudson, winner of the 2022 Dior Photography and Visual Arts Award for Young Talents. Her transdisciplinary practice also encompasses costuming and set design, and draws on her research in cultural studies.
This first solo exhibition brings together photographs from several different series that explore the imaginary of the 1970s. Some images simulate candid photographs from that period, including photographs of young soccer fans. Others take the form of theatrical mises-en-scène in which her models perform. Although mischievous and playful, the photographs are rigorously constructed and are based on her extensive theoretical and visual research. Observing fashion, and in particular its ability to depict the sociocultural conditions and to express individuality, the artist examines questions of identity, society and history through the prism of the culture of clothing.
