The Actes Sud tour of the Ateliers ends with a spectacular installation created for the occasion by Daido Moriyama. From his famous image of the female body girdled in fishnet tights - which he fiddles with with jubilation and salutory disrespect - he has created a background, a large piece of kinetic wallpaper to which contact sheets have been attached and on which two lines of prints have been framed. Like the photographer himself, you have to go and decipher the exhibition that is only too aware of its chaotic worldview approach, with cities sectioned every which way in strong contrasts.
