New Photographer represented
Mar 1, 2017

Michael Hoppen Gallery is delighted to announce the representation of British photographer Siân Davey. Her work will be displayed alongside photographer Joseph Szabo in an exhibition named 'UNTETHERED' // 6 April - 20 May

 

Siân Davey, who is also a psychotherapist, describes her approach to the project: ‘Firstly, as a mother I’m interested in the relational aspects of adolescence. I’m also fascinated with this developmental stage when a child starts to individuate and separate from their parents. There is this particular point in time when you have a child and adult in the same body, which is why it’s such a complex and potentially confusing time. During this period of transition, there is a very short and specific ‘window’ when a person can behave in a way, which is free of the weight of societal expectations and norms. Before too long the window closes and we can forget how it felt to be ‘untethered’.’
