THE EXHIBITION
LUMAS is pleased to present the exhibition Boudoir – A Hint of Sensuality whose title refers to the boudoir as the classical place of transformation through costume, and to the joyous sensuality reigning there. Hinted, hidden, or shown openly; narrating, concealing, and revealing at the same time; simultaneously staged and appearing natural; awakening associations without unmasking; pictorially and explicitly displaying and still insisting on the mysterious; evoking clarity in obscurity; stirring expectation and consciously leaving that expectation open; banishing sensuality and eroticism from the picture; or staging images as implied stories.

The artistic departure of the photographers in this exhibition approaches the theme of the erotic depiction of imagined reality from very different views. And yet one aspect connects them all: the notion of the ornamental, playful, erotic, and baroque. The photos in this exhibition are relevant today as they tell of our desire to dream, during the day and at night.

Boudoir – A Hint of Sensuality features works by Michel Comte, Lilya Corneli, GABO, Billy & Hells, Andreas Kock, Floriane de Lassée, Jens Nagels, Jacques Olivar, and Howard Schatz.
