Paris is celebrating photography like never before in November, do also visit the 10th arrondissement festival! We dedicate this day to it.
For the third time in a row, the artistic direction of the Rencontres photographiques of the 10e arrondissement has been entrusted to the Fetart collective.
After more than a year of health crisis and sluggish cultural life, this 9th edition sounds like a return to life. Throughout the month of November 2021, in the public space and cultural venues of the 10th arrondissement, photography is more than ever installed in the borough, showing once again the very strong attachment of the territory to the photographic practice under all its forms.
This edition will be like the 10th, full of energy and color, with multiple identities, open and inclusive. It will be sponsored by Marvin Bonheur, a young photographer from Seine-Saint-Denis who for several years has been glorifying the urban heroes of his daily life. The Rencontres photographiques of the 10e wish to create confrontations of images to surprise, make people think and promote accessibility to contemporary photography for all. Exhibitions, screenings, workshops, meetings with artists, more than 30 events with free access, spread over 6 hotspots in the heart of the borough. In short, a great festival of photography, demanding but open to the greatest number!
Group exhibition: I photograph, I move forward.
A sentimental journey on a mythical road (Céline Bonnarde), an obstacle course towards the desire for motherhood (Stéphanie Kowalski), a journey between family memories and the way they work on identity (Flora Nguyen), snapshots not so instantaneous of our tourist migrations (Antoine Biron). And finally, a sensual awakening in the twilight (Clarisse Clozier). Photographing as a philosophy of life. To move forward.
Curators of Images en Partage – Bruno Dubreuil, Anthony Jahn, Pierre Jarrige.
La Nationale 7
“My Nationale, as I could say my house. Not out of a sense of owning , but rather a sense of intimacy. I have known this route since my childhood. My grandparents’ house was on the edge of the Nationale 7, in Moulins / Allier, cradled by the Paris-Clermont-Ferrand railway line. Sometimes on Sundays the family would go to their house for coffee. When the weather was fine, it was under the tamarisk trees in the courtyard. But most of the time, in the dining room, a small room overrun with knick-knacks and doilies made by my grandmother, with a large dining table in the center. My grandfather sat at one end, like a patriarch, with his family around him. For women it was a coffee, for men a little shot accompanied the coffee. ”
Céline Bonnarde‘s work addresses the autobiographical notion, where fiction meets reality, to better respond to a search for identity that is both personal and collective. From intimate scenes to landscapes, including portraits or street photography, her images question time, memory, roots and send us back to the universality of our human condition. – Françoise Agnelet
