CAROLYNE SCENNA | JE SUIS LA PIRE À CE QUE JE FAIS LE MIEUX ET POUR CE DON JE ME SENS BÉNIE
The graffiti artist – gifted or not, recognized or anonymous – transgresses order with an economy of gesture and time. Seated at her computer, Carolyne Scenna also acts on what is presented before her. She reworks the representation and codification of her own photographic images to constrain them within multiple associations of place, form and writing. By paying particular attention to the visible effects of their transformations, she recomposes the traces of her experience, creating visual mix tapes with various lo-fi media and devices. From this process emerges a committed detachment from the real, which she uses to test her own indecision, as well as her precarious and spontaneous relationship to the photographic act. By reflecting on this relationship, typical of current issues of manipulation and proliferation of dematerialized personal archives, she explores the polysemic potential of the image.
Exhibition from October 24 to December 9, 2017.
Opening: October 23, 2017 at 5:30 p.m.
