For this months Purple TV Takeover we invited artist, photographer, filmmaker, and Purple contributor KATERINA JEBB to curate a selection of videos. This exclusive takeover coincides with the opening of her L’Arlesienne show, curated byCHRISTIAN LACROIX and on view until September 21st, at the at Les Rencontres Arles Photography Festival 2014, Arles.
For L’Arlesienne Jebb was commissioned by Lacroix to portray the Arlésienne woman and has produced 47 new works following the theme of the exhibition, absence. The theme of the exhibition L’Arlésienne is taken from a novel written in 1869 by ALPHONSE DAUDET. Lacroix plays on this literary term meaning someone or something which does not appear.
