To celebrate International Women’s Day this March, renowned Melbourne photographer Fabrice Bigot
has joined forces with Andy Dinan and her gallery MARS to create and exhibit a new series of rose
portraits titled BLOOM.
Bigot travels throughout Victoria in search of botanical growth to immortalise through luminous yet
intimate photographs. Bigot staged his first solo exhibition in Australia, Naked Garden, at Walker Street
Gallery, Melbourne to critical acclaim in 2015. Recent series include Flores Venerae, which exhibited at
The Lyric Emerging Artist Gallery, Fitzroy in 2017.
Commissions from the sale of Bigot’s BLOOM series will be donated to Global Fund for Women to
support anti violence programs throughout the world.
“Women from countries like ours are reaching out to women suffering from violence and lack of human
rights throughout the world. Join me to support life changing projects in the Asia Pacific region by
attending this wonderful art event”, says Global Fund for Women Board Member, Kerry Gardner, AM.
For MARS director Andy Dinan, inviting Bigot to exhibit at MARS was a much-awaited opportunity to
show the ways in which the art sector can actively support women in need.
“We see many events celebrating International Women’s Day in the corporate sector but very few
which are accessible to the public or propose a call to action which enables change,” says Dinan.
