AdeY - Uncensored
Pride City, Wed 2 Aug 10:00 AM–11:00 PM
No one really knows who AdeY is. The Swedish-British artist’s real name, age and place of residence are still unknown. AdeY left a career as a professional dancer, something evident in the photographs which combine photography, choreography, and performance. They have published a series of poetic photobooks and exhibited in several of the world’s best known museums, including in London and New York. AdeY is behind the exhibit Uncensored at Fotografiska, and the second artist in the Emerging Artists initiative.
The forms of the exhibition Uncensored began to take shape in 2015–2016, when AdeY, during a period of intense travel, was struck by the sexualization of bodies in advertising images. Then and there, a desire was awoken to show the body just as “only” a body, without reducing it into a sexualized symbol. The images in the exhibit are playful and experimental, with bodies often depicted in choreographed poses or formations. The viewer is given the right to interpret the images, which is an important part of AdeY’s artistry.
