MEXICO CITY.- Museo Tamayo Arte Contemporáneo presents Elipsis: Chantal Akerman, Lili Dujourie, Francesca Woodman, on view October 4, January 6, 2008. The exhibit will present together works by Chantal Akerman (Brussels, 1950), Lili Dujourie (Lovendegem, 1941) and Francesca Woodman (Denver, 1958 – New York, 1981), for the first time. During the 1970’s the artists did performance art in front of a camera. The artist’s proposals refer to the alienated relationship of woman in the world. Their worries relate to the construction and representation of the identity.

Lynne Cooke, the exhibition’s curator, places for the first time photographs and videos of these three artists who were born in different contexts and 10 years apart, but whose work present affinities and parallels that may not have been recognized.

Akerman, Dujourie and Woodman used photography and other technologies like film and video during the late 1960’s. Their point of departure was themselves, as artists and models with their bodies as subjects and objects.
