Zöe Buckman was born in 1985 in East London, UK, and attended the International Center of Photography in New York. She began working as an art photographer at the age of 20, recently expanding her practice to include sculpture, neon, and embroidery. Born out of the influences of Feminism and Hip-Hop in Buckman’s upbringing, her on-going series EVERY CURVE unites the apparent contradictions between ‘the masculine’ and ‘the feminine’ in contemporary culture. Buckman sews lyrical segments of the infamous wrappers Tupac and Biggie directly onto vintage lingerie, and in so doing, illustrates the oppositional perceptions of woman as sexual object, woman as love, and woman as creator; perceptions which, with recourse to history, remain unchanged. Works from EVERY CURVE will be exhibited this September at Alan Koppel Gallery, Chicago. Buckman has also been included in exhibitions at Getty Images Gallery, London; Flowers Gallery, London; and Pulse Art Fair NYC. Solo exhibitions of her photographic series LOOS were presented at Milk Studios NYC (2010) and Opera Gallery London (2011).
