Rosângela Rennó Wins Kering Women in Motion Prize for Photography

PARIS — Kering has named Rosângela Rennó the winner of its 2023 Women in Motion Award for photography, in recognition of the Brazilian artist’s work on discarded images rescued from various sources, from flea markets and web photos to institutional archives.

She is as a consequence of receive the prize on July 4 in the course of the photography festival Les Rencontres d’Arles, which is able to host the primary major exhibition of her work in France. Supported by the Women in Motion program, the show will run from July 3 to Sept. 24, and Rennó will give a chat during an event on the Théâtre Antique in Arles.

“She’s going to present her work and share with the audience her personal journey and her view of ladies’s place in photography and society normally,” Kering said in a press release Friday. “Her work is an in depth exploration of time, of forgetting, and the social and psychological changes that affect memory.”

Rennó is thought for appropriating and remodeling archival photographic material into an art installation or a book of photography. In 2013, she received the festival’s Historical Book Award for her work on the pictures stolen from the National Library of Brazil in Rio de Janeiro.

Initially geared toward highlighting work by women within the realm of film, Women in Motion was founded in 2015 on the Cannes Film Festival. Kering expanded this system by adding the photography award in 2019, and said Friday that it has renewed its commitment to the Arles festival for one more five years.

The prize is accompanied by an endowment for acquiring works of the winner for the festival’s collection. The previous recipients were Babette Mangolte, Liz Johnson Artur, Sabine Weiss and Susan Meiselas.

Kering can even support an exhibition of photographs taken by late director Agnès Varda in 1954 before and in the course of the shooting of the film “La Pointe Courte.” A key figure within the French Recent Wave with movies like “Cleo From 5 to 7,” Varda was one among the primary participants within the Women in Motion program of film talks.
