Monday, January 31st | 6:30pm | Discussion | Aperture Gallery
With: Pierre Cassou-Noguès, Jen Davis
Hosted by: Denise Wolff
Co-presented with Aperture

Photographer Jen Davis has produced a stunning series of self-portraits in which she stages herself in different scenes of daily life. With her new series, “I ask in exchange,” she takes portraits of men she says she would not approach, were she not empowered by her camera. This machine gives her the courage to walk up and speak with them. It becomes a tool of seduction and for a brief moment, she “asks in exchange” for the shooting to be looked at and desired by the subject. She will discuss the representations of the self with philosopher Pierre Cassou-Noguès, whose latest book, Mon Zombie et moi (“My Zombie and I”), plays with different short pieces of fiction in which he uses “I,” as a starting point for his philosophical reflection.”
