Tania Mouraud –RueVisconti


A new photographic gallery just opened on the RueVisconti, in Honore de Balzac’s former printing house. A joint initiative by Olivier Etcheverry and Flammarion, RueVisconti has a triple vocation, to exhibit the work of a photographic artist, publish a catalog and release a film.

For Olivier Etcheverry, photography is today “in the process of upturning the art world, it is the most widely used medium, the most contested, and the most affirmed there is.”

Tania Mouraud is the first artist to invest Rue Visconti. The book published on this occasion is a compilation of her first series taken in 1981 at the Palace, and her latest creation.

The text by Régis Durand completes this edition, here is an excerpt:
“For Tania Mouraud, photography is, in her own terms, linked to “the art of the promenade.” Wandering through the city, surfing on the profusion of signs until an idea takes shape, or rather, a method emerges – a protocol, a principle for organising these signs as a system, so that one goes from walk to artwork (or at least, yhe beginnings of a work) from the uncontrolled profusion th the unitary entity of the theme or series (for example, <em<Vitrines, or Rétrovisée).”
