The new Saint Laurent Babylone store, designed by Anthony Vaccarello, is celebrating its opening with an exhibition of the late English artist Rose Finn-Kelcey. Finn-Kelcey was a pioneer of performance and feminist art in the 1970s, and her work explores themes such as identity, power and spirituality.

The exhibition features eight works by Finn-Kelcey, four of which are from the series Restored to her natural state by nibbling rose petals, 1977; as well as the work Here is a Gale Warning, 1971 that is currently flying on top of the Tate Britain in London, and two other artworks – Variable Light to Moderate, 1971 and Fog, 1971.

Finn-Kelcey’s works are part of the permanent collections of major museums such as MoMa, Tate Britain, and the National Portrait Gallery. She is represented by Kate McGarry in London, who has been working with her estate since her death in 2014.

The exhibition at Saint Laurent Babylone will run until April 30, 2024. It is a rare opportunity to see Finn-Kelcey’s work in Paris, and a tribute to her legacy as one of the most influential artists of her generation.
