Sous Les Etoiles : Carolle Benitah : B, or the Memory of Childhood


B, or the Memory of Childhood is an exhibition that combines two of the best-known series by the Franco-Moroccan artist Carolle Benitah : Photo Souvenirs developed from her family and personal archives and the other entitled Jamais je ne t’oublierai constructed from found and anonymous photos.

For almost twenty years now, Carolle Benitah’s artistic intention has been telling us about the constant search for balance between familial ties hoping happiness can exist. “Exploring the memory of childhood, says Carolle Benitah, allows me to understand who I am and to define my identity today.

Indeed, the title of Benitah’s exhibition B, or the memory of Childhood is inspired by the book published is 1975, from the French writer Georges Perec, W or The Memory of Childhood which combines the autobiographical story of a child’s life during the war, a poor story of exploits and memories and a text belonging entirely to the imagination of the author relating an Olympic ideal.
