Senta Simond: Dissonance

Ends Apr 27, 2024
Renowned for photographs of the female body that counter stereotypical views of feminine beauty, Simond has created a new and ongoing body of work Dissonance; an ensemble of videos and photos. Perhaps the centrepiece of the exhibition exists in a visual and sound dialogue between two young women who have never met in person: a young Ukrainian dancer and an Irish harpist. The work, which combines Simond’s images with footage by the two young women, whom she asked to film themselves inspired by her approach, also speaks to ideas of staging and performance, improvisation and chance.
