24 Sept-23 Nov 2008. This exhibition displays over 90 images dedicated to famous and less known women created by the scene-designer, painter, movie-director and photographer Bettina Rheims between 1991 and 2004. The event highlights eight different series, which mark the main stops in the creative and colourful world of the artist. FORMA displays Olga, an unpublished series of nine shots, for the first time. Rheims is inspired by the world of advertisements and movies and portrays her figures in almost theatrical poses, while others recall the composition and chromatic choices of more classical photography. Her nudes of statuary models, actresses and singers are always ironical, and immortalize candid poses as well as erotic, malicious, arrogant and sinful expressions. Her products are the result of an accurate intellectual and visual construction where nothing is casual.
