Viviane Sassen – Pikin Slee

Info

Institute of Contemporary Arts
The Mall
London SW1Y 5AH
February 3 – April 12, 2015

Words

A solo show by the Dutch photographer Viviane Sassen, entitled Pikin Slee, opened at the ICA in London earlier this month. The exhibition is primarily focused on a body of work from 2013 that she produced in the Surinamese village of the same name.

"My memories of Africa have always played a major role in my life and in my work. I guess that’s because they filled my very first consciousness. It’s in my spine, my blueprint so to speak. When I returned back from Kenya, all I knew was my life there, so Holland seemed very strange and new to me. Now that I’ve travelled so much in Africa over the past 12 years, my ideas about the continent and about myself in relation to it, have changed of course. But it’s a continuous journey, both in the inside world and the outside world. My work is a reflection of that journey."

Words

Until January 18th 2015, the first London exhibition by Dutch artist Viviane Sassen can be seen at The Photographers' Gallery. Focused on her fashion output, it features hundreds of images projected in a loop across the walls and floor of the space. This unique presentation of the work was conceived by Sassen as a way to maximise the scope of the show, while adding an extra visual layer which ties nicely into the astronomical reference used in its title. Rightly regarded one of the most innovative photographers working today, this exhibition is essential viewing for anyone living in London or passing through in the next two months – whether you have an interest in fashion or not.
