This exhibition is dedicated to French photograph Valérie Jouve and displays some of her work from the late 80s to the present day.

Her work is rooted in the alchemy between bodies and space, humanity and the urban landscape. In her combined portrayal of people in motion and buildings, she explores physical presence in cities and ways of living in space.

The classic subjects of landscape and portrait are brought together in a way that draws splendidly choreographed scenes out of the intensity of urban situations.

The exhibition presents over twenty years of Jouve's work, comprising sequences of films, photographs, texts and sounds. In Valérie Jouve's work urban and periurban spaces are built-up, leaving no room for earth.

Some of her images are of implacably geometrical generic sites, while others show human beings on a human scale, as an active force within the city and a call to action.
