Retrospective in nature, the exhibition contains eight series of her most recent photographs, including Safes, Chips, and Black Women.

Valérie Belin photographs objects including glasses, silver, masks, mirrors, and meat. The seeming randomness of the items which interest the French photographer are as deceptive as the images themselves. Belin's photographs are an experiment in ambiguity. They are hyper realistic to the point of disbelief.

In 2004 Valérie Belin was shortlisted for the prestigious Marcel Duchamp prize, and in 1997 was awarded the Paris Photo prize. Her photographs can be found in several of the most important international collections, including The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, and the Fondation Cartier pour L'Art Contemporain, Paris. Upcoming exhibitions of Belin's work during 2007-2008 will be held the Musée de l'Elysée in Lausanne, Switzerland, the Maison Européenne de la Photographie in Paris, France, and at the Huis Marseille in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Belin's photographs will also be exhibited at several international art fairs including LA Art in New York, Photo London, and Art DC.

The artist lives and works in Paris.
