The Studio de la MEP, a space dedicated to emerging creation, presents Femme Actuelle, the first solo exhibition by artist My-Lan Hoang-Thuy.
My-Lan Hoang-Thuy’s artistic practice encompasses a variety of forms, blurring the boundaries between different media, using photography as well as painting, drawing, and graphic art in her compositions. Although the works exhibited here all have a similar structure – they are made with acrylic paint, with the artist mixing the colours herself – they do not necessarily follow a predefined hierarchy or blueprint.
In Femme Actuelle, Hoang-Thuy is exhibiting a selection of works that include photographic images of her own body produced between 2019 and the present day. She disrupts the distinct perception of the forms of her body by playfully modulating and distorting her anatomy, stretching or shortening it, diversifying her poses, thereby resisting any sense of objectification.
Curator : Clothilde Morette
