EMMANUELLE DURET | VIEWS FROM ABOVE

Information on the activity

November 3, 2022 to January 21, 2023

From November 4, 2022, until January 21, 2023.

"Views from Above" is a photographic and sculptural installation by Emmanuelle Duret (1990-2022) completed by a collective made up of the artist’s close circle after her passing. This project pursues the research undertaken by Duret in "Discreet Inscenatory Effects" and "Die KZ und die Gedenkstätte: Replica I" (Sightings, Leonard & Bina Ellen Art Gallery, 2021) on the rhetoric of memorial sites and the tropes of intergenerational transmission. It is directly related to a trip the artist undertook in 2019 during which she photographed the empty foundations of barrack #5 at the site of the former Allach (Dachau) subcamp in the suburbs of Ludwigsfeld in Germany. "Views from Above" deals more specifically with the discursive fragmentation that the image operates on the exhibition’s narratives and leads us to reflect on the way history and memory are invisibly inscribed within spaces.
