Atsuko Kudo at SHOWstudio Gallery for ‘Selling Sex’ Exhibition
Atsuko Kudo is very happy to have been asked to contribute a special commission piece to the current exhibition at SHOWstudio Gallery’s ‘Selling Sex’ exhibition. The piece designed and produced for the show is entitled ‘Armour for Prostitutes’ and marks a further development of Atsuko’s signature couture style.
The ensemble includes a one piece fully filigreed dress and hood combination in black which also has built in neck and waist corsets. This is worn over a cloud grey bustled petticoat – with additional extensive filigree around the hem. It is further accessorised with matching Diana lace filigree black latex over boots and opera gloves.
The ‘Selling Sex’ exhibition contains the work of female artists exclusively. This is a direct response to the lack of female artists’ representation in major galleries and the wider under representation in the creative and other industries.
Other artists in the show include Una Burke, Sarah Lucas, Betony Vernon, Liz Cohen, Lisa Z. Morgan and Marianne Maric amongst others.
The show opened with a very well attended private view on March 22nd including SHOWstudio’s founder and legendary photographer Nick Knight.
The gallery is at SHOWstudio Shop at 1 – 9 Bruton Place, London, W1J 6LT and is open Monday to Friday 11.00 to 18.00.
