The Devils Exhibition by Constance Jaeggi
Photography of the Devil’s Horseman in London
FORT WORTH, TEXAS (Oct, 19, 2021). The National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame will host a new exhibition,The Devils by Constance Jaeggi. The exhibition will be on display in the Anne W. Marion Gallery Oct. 22, 2021, through Feb. 6, 2022. The museum is excited to feature this exhibition during the 45th Annual Induction Luncheon and Ceremony.
International award-winning photographer Constance Jaeggi uses the Devil’s Horseman, located outside London, as a backdrop for exploring intimacy, connection and power dynamics between horse and human during an unprecedented time of isolation.
This raw and intuitive project unveils a fascinating way of life, pulling the curtain back to reveal the behind-the-scenes of the film industry and the danger and ardor of the work that comes with it. The Devils will immerse the viewer into the relationship that exists between human and animal – where the unspoken language of respect crosses all boundaries.
Constance Jaeggi moved to Texas from her native Switzerland in 2009 to pursue her degree from Texas Christian University and to begin her competitive cutting horse riding career. Jaeggi has studied at the New York Film Academy and most recently completed a Master of Art History and Art World Practice at Christie’s in London. The Devils is short-listed for the 2021 Critical Mass Awards. This marks her second solo exhibition at the National Cowgirl Museum.
