Victoire Eouzan’s project When the Mountain Took the Place of my Father is an homage to her father through the personification of the mountains of which she makes “portraits”. This way, by the means of photography, Eouzan keeps the memory of her father alive. “To me, these mountains are monuments standing in front of us, gradually becoming the portrait of my father who, in a certain way, would never disappear,” comments Victoire. In 2019, Eouzan self-published her first photo book on the project When the Mountain Took the Place of my Father.
“Victoire Eouzan and her works from the series When the Mountain Took the Place of my Father are on view in Rotterdam at the international group photo exhibition How sweet life is (Het Zoete Leven). This exhibition, curated by Hans Withoos at the invitation of the Debsaysyes art foundation, highlights many facets of human emotion on the basis of works by 27 international photographers. Each work creates its own experience. Together they are sometimes in contrast, sometimes in harmony, but always carefully chosen and touching.
Het Zoete Leven can be seen from 1st to 4th of July (during Rotterdam Art Week) and from the 9th to 11th of July 2021 in the House of Photography Rotterdam, Westersingel 101, Rotterdam
