Arles 2024 : BISOUS Concept Store : Nadine Dinter : Torso Reloaded II


On the 2nd of July 2024, coinciding with the official kick-off of the renowned photography festival Rencontres d’Arles, the Berlin-based photographer Nadine Dinter will unveil her newest solo show at the beloved BISOUS Concept Store in the heart of Arles. “Torso Reloaded II” is the second installment of an exhibition cycle Dinter originally developed in 2012 with former erotic male model Benjamin Godfre as an homage to Andy Warhol’s infamous 1977 “Torso” series.

This latest exhibition features both framed works and an intervention with the store’s own design. Primarily showcasing new torso portraits captured by Dinter between Winter 2022 and Fall 2023 in Berlin, Paris, and Arles, the presentation also includes female torso images, representing a broader range of body types and perspectives. Alongside bodyscapes of internationally booked models Madame Sophie, Daria and Elizabeth as well as of fellow artist Catrine, Torso Reloaded II exhibits alluring torso portraits of French model Lucas Fortrye and French tattoo artist Ange Mathieu. Additionally, Dinter photographed Berlin entrepreneur Carlos and his impressive full body tattoo, adding further narrative depth to this latest installment of her ongoing “Torso Tales” series.

Echoing Nadine Dinter’s previous “Torso Reloaded” exhibition at HAZEGALLERY in October 2022, the individual body embellishments like tattoos and piercings stand in for depictions of the model’s faces, encapsulating each model’s personal history as told through their scars, musculature, and tattoo art. Consequently, the bodies appear intimately near without being overtly sexualized.

An experimental space will be set up on the basement level, featuring the interactive exhibition “TORSO RELOADED UNLIMITED” where visitors can photograph their own torso with a polaroid camera, photograph each other, or simply explore the revealing continuation of the presentation above. This portion of the show includes a curated selection from the 2022 “TORSO RELOADED” cycle as well as a broad array of new works, adopting a more open approach to torso photography.
