Villa Pérochon, Niort : Rencontres de la jeune photographie internationale


The Rencontres de la jeune photographie internationale take place at the Villa Pérochon, Niort, from April 5th to May 25th, 2024. They are presented as follows:

We have been exploring emerging photography for 30 years by inviting, every year, young international artists from all photographic and cultural artistic horizons to a creative residency. Keeping the spirit of the Meetings of Young International Photography, we launched, during the summer of 2023, a call for projects inviting young international creators to develop prospective photographic projects entitled: 30 years later?
What will happen to the photographic image, what is its future? What shifts of paradigm will take place?
What will happen to the duality between virtuality and reality? What questions does photographic ecology pose?…
More than ever, the period before us questions our perceptions of the world.

Alisa Martynova (Russian living in Italy), Sumi Anjuman (Bangladeshi living in The Hague) Cristóbal Ascencio (Mexican living in Madrid), and living in France Marine Combes, Violaine Carrère, Alice Pallot, Thomas Pendeliau and the duo Adrien Pontet – Tao Douay made the challenge theirs.

Eight new exhibitions are presented to you in 4 exhibition and heritage sites in Niort. A wide variety of approaches and procedures are developed: those of the possibilities of digital technology with inevitably the enormous advances in Artificial Intelligence, but also those of research linked to the materiality of photography, to socio-ecological concerns, with the questions of the use of clean chemistry and all current research on alternative processes in reaction to the hegemony of digital technology.

It is a journey towards the future, or at least in the imagination of the invited artists that the entire Villa Pérochon team offers you, with its associative dynamism which once again supported the artists in their new projects. Follow us and see you in Niort!
