“A rock is a roc is a roque”: that’s the droll, gimmicky title that artistic director Nicolas Havette has given to his new photography exhibition. Through June 15, the gallery Magasin de Jouets in Arles will welcome three talented young contemporary photographers who confront their worlds, attitudes and practices through complementary pieces of work. Ulrich Lebeuf, Stéphane C. and Olli Berry give us the world as they see it. As Havette explains: “What unites these three artists is their desire to reclaim the world, to wear it down, to take carefully selected extracts and relate them, to have them rub together and reveal the almost absurd poetry of contemporary life and experience.”
