Armel Beaufils, le Regard des femmes
Exhibition curated by Sharon Kivland

FRAC de Bretagne, Presbytère St-Briac-sur-Mer
1st July / 3rd September 2017

"40 women artists have being asked to respond (indeed, correspond) with a work, a plaster model, by the early 20th century sculptor Armel Beaufils. The form of response/correspondence is constrained only by the A3 size and two-dimensional nature of the wall panel. " In the exhibition each response is exhibited alongside the artwork, in the accompanying catalogue it is paired as a double-page with a photograph of the work to which it refers.

Clay woman or the pleasure of wetting a bit more then one’s toe / Femme argile (ou le plaisir d’y tremper un peu plus que le pied). I responded with a couple of self portraits I had taken a few months earlier while bathing in clay mud in central Otago in New Zealand South Island. In the first one I uncannily adopts a similar bathing pose to the one portrayed by the clay figure in the image I was sent, though less timidly as confirmed by the second image.
