BUSY LIVINGAn Exhibition by Coco Capitan

Reveal the artist’s instinctive sensitivity to contemporary social issues, exploring connections between reality and perception and between beauty and subversion.

The MEP presents Coco Capitan: Busy Living, the first institutional exhibition in France of the work of one of the most accomplished artists of her generation.

Coco Capitán is already an accomplished artist, one of the most prolific of her generation, combining photography, painting and performance with written material made up of slogans and aphorisms. She became involved in the world of fashion at an early stage of her career, and quickly earned international renown as a fashion photographer. Often capturing her models in incongruous poses, she reinvents the relationship between self and body in fashion imagery, bringing her playful approach to the many luxury brands she works with, such as Gucci.
Photographs, paintings and previously unseen texts, Busy Living reveals the

artist’s instinctive sensitivity to contemporary social issues, exploring connections between reality and perception and between beauty and subversion.
She broadcasts her aphorisms via social media and reproduces them on canvas, urging us to live in the here and now despite being constantly encouraged to live in a projected future.
Reflecting her interest in the representation and perception of the body, her “Fashion Without the Fashion” is an integral part of the show, offering a fresh and thoughtful perspective on the familiar tropes of fashion imagery.At MEP Maison Européenne de la Photographie
