DEBORAH TURBEVILLE 1977-1981
May 04, 2017 — Jun 10, 2017
This period was an important one for Deborah Turbeville. She completed three major projects: Comme des Garçons, Women in the Wood, and The Glass House. In subsequent years she reworked this material using multiple printing methods, different papers and sizes, bleaching and darkening.
This exhibition of black and white and color photographs presents Deborah Turbeville’s fashion work. This distinct, intensely personal vision projects a sense of isolation, romanticism, and ambivalence that is haunting and disturbing. Turbeville creates a charged atmosphere of mystery, ambiguity, and drama by combining elements of architecture, décor, and fashion with her sense of composition, often presenting women in groups, with no interaction between them.
