Design client Sam Roddick's first Exhibition at Michael Hoppen Gallery

Michael Hoppen Gallery
20th March - 1st May, 2015

Best known as the original founder of the erotic boutique, Coco de Mer, Roddick has long been exploring our cultural relationship to sex. In this project, which has occupied her for the last couple of years, she turns her attention to the subject of the sexual objectification of women. Roddick takes as her creative muse the twentieth century Italian architect and designer Carlo Mollino, and in particular examines his erotic polaroids. (from the press release)
