Press release

A literary genre developed in 18th century France later known as the libertine novel. From the mid 1750s until the French Revolution, writers such as Denis Diderot, Cyrano de Bergerac and Choderlos de Laclos created narratives that were deeply rebellious. Their work balance seduction and the erotic with a resistance to the structures of the establishment. Genieve Figgis’s subversive paintings share the same sensibility. Her work is innately libertine, exuding pleasure and satire, sensitivity and subversion in equal measure.
