From the story for Duggal Connect on Jen Davis’ exhibition “Eleven Years”:
Since 2000, ClampArt in New York City’s Chelsea neighborhood has developed a reputation as one of the premier contemporary photography galleries in the Big Apple.
From May 22nd to July 3rd, ClampArt will host photographer Jen Davis’ “Eleven Years” exhibition, which studies Davis’ and society’s perception of her body image over eleven years of her life.
Davis began taking self-portraits in 2002 in an effort to challenge traditional views of feminine beauty. Overweight for most of her life, Davis’ exhibition showcases her battle with loneliness, as well as her desire for love, intimacy and acceptance.
