The Gallery at Hermès in NY: 'Martine Fougeron: Teen Tribe'
Exhibition on view at The Gallery at Hermès, 691 Madison Avenue, New York from September 20 to November 8, 2013.
Fougeron’s series, Teen Tribe , began in 2005 when her two sons were 13 and 14 respectively. It follows their adolescent years and is an intimate portrait of her sons and their friends in both NewYork and France.
Fougeron explains, “The work explores adolescence as a liminal state, between childhood and adulthood, between the feminine and the masculine and between innocence and aburgeoning self-identity. The focus is on the adolescents’ heightened states of minds.”
The Gallery at Hermès will present 23 color photographs and will be the first to exhibit the completed series.
The anticipated publication of Fougeron’s Teen Tribe, A World with Two Sons (Steidl) is scheduled for Spring of 2014.
The exhibition is presented by the Hermès Foundation as part of the French Institute Alliance
Française (FIAF)’s Crossing the Line 2013 Festival.
The exhibition at the Gallery at Hermès is curated by Cory Jacobs.
