Arles : La Torera by François Delebecque at Galerie Huit

Galerie Huit, in Arles, presents through May 2nd, 2015, François Delebecque‘s La Torera.
She emerges from the atelier: passionate, magnificent , vengeful… dressed just in a matador’s jacket which leaves her naked and exposed. 
The glory of  this woman’s combative nature : by using the ‘muleta’ as a weapon of defense, her face hidden behind an appropriate fan, she becomes even more desirable despite her fighter’s stance.  
The gender roles are inverted,  man, in comparison to woman,  becomes an insignificant little poser. »
This series of photographs is an interrogation of the world of bullfighting, of woman’s strength in the face of man’s ineptness, of her struggles that go beyond the seduction and splendour of nudity, while her hidden face speaks of  the universality of the combative woman. 
Founded in 2007 by writer, gallerist and curator Julia de Bierre, Galerie Huit – situated in the heart of Arles in a 17th century mansion – has gained a solid reputation for its careful selection of  both emerging and established artists and the quality and originality of its hangings or installations. 
Galerie Huit collaborates regularly with Sit Down gallery in Paris.
