Couple poses naked in support of Larry Clark exhibition
Issued on: Modified:
Two weeks ago, the Paris city hall decided to bar minors under 18 from attending a exhibition of works by American photographer Larry Clark currently on show in the city’s Museum of Modern art. An unusual demonstration of prudishness for France, that was quickly criticised by artists and youths alike.
To protest what they perceive as unnecessary censorship, a couple chose to pose entirely naked in front of the exhibit’s photos of…naked couples. The daring coup should add to the buzz around the provocative show.
This photo was posted by Justine Yvel on her Facebook account. The 33-year-old graphic designer explains that she and her partner decided to strip and pose naked in the exhibit because “we grew up with Larry Clark’s work, and although we’re over 18 we’re still exposed to censorship”.
