Artists’ book, Photos, poems.
Galerie Boltanski, Le Forum du Blanc-Mesnil, Paris
Organised by the residence of contemporary art centre Le Forum du Blanc-Mesnil, ‘La Traversée des images’ is a curated project by French photographer collective Tendance Floue, led by collective member Alain Willaume. This project proposes a workshop between Tendance Floue and young artists, with a ‘shared artistic direction’: each one creates a possible history made up of selected images in the collective archives and personal archives of each of them. These stories are inspired by themes that cross the residence of Tendance Floue. Each of the stories is the subject of a publication and an exhibition.
The final work is made with newspaper formed Artists’ book, and presented at the final residence exhibition in the Forum du Blanc-Mesnil.
Proposée par Alain Willaume dans le cadre de la résidence du collectif de photographes Tendance Floue au Forum/scène conventionnée de Blanc-Mesnil, La traversée des images est le fruit d’un atelier de “direction artistique partagée”.
