“The paradigm of seaside fantasy, the beach is an infinitely inspiring playground for photographers from all over the world. It unveils a theater of curiosities and inspires by its wealth of functions.A public and egalitarian space, the beach is the curious receptacle of ‘a leisure society needing evasion’ ALL AT THE BEACH ‘reveals the stakes beyond the simple pleasure of swimming, artists question the architecture of these spaces, observe the sociology of places, to distill the photographic approach with a more sensitive, poetic approach.
Olivier Monge / MYOP reveals an ambitious and heteroclite curating offering a wide selection of photographic languages. This exhibition offers the works of great photographers Martin Parr, Claude Nori, Nino Migliori or Bernard Plossu, younger photographers like Bertrand Stofleh, Cyril Weiner or Patrick Tourneboeuf, coming from architecture and landscape photography, bring us a reflection on the notion of representation of the territory. Staging is also honored with Pierre Emmanuel Daumas’ very zesty paintings setting families at home “as at the beach” or the self-portrait of Agnès Jouhandeaux in the fallen Venus, a critic of a society focused on beauty. Alain Keler’s black and white photo essays, Oan Kim’s contemplative frescoes and Jean François Maccario’s bath towel collection complete the richness and diversity of the proposals.
The beach is highlighted by a blue camaïeu scenography imagined by Roxane Daumas a prolific muse unveiling this piece of sand between land and sea .
