The 54th edition hosts 45 exhibitions, and this year again, experimentation crosses the field of exhibitions and themes.
Maciejka Art manipulates photography and transforms it, to better reflect an exploration of femininity and motherhood. The artist/curator duo of Eva Nielsen and Marianne Derrienn invests the landscapes of the Camargue and seizes optical phenomena to reveal their richness. Zofia Kulik handles the photographic medium and builds a new feminine identity, full of symbols. On the borders of the expedition and the experience of the first inventors, Roberto Huarcaya summons to him in a nocturnal practice the technique of the photogram to play with our senses in the representation of the Peruvian tropical forest. Finally, Juliette Agnel invites us to the mystery of our origins in the cryptoporticoes, an ancient and magical place, invested for the first time this year by the festival.
