Opening of the EMPIRE exhibition at the “Rencontres d’Arles”, curated by Christian Lacroix (on the picture). It gave us the chance to show for the second time our Vis voluntatis performance, with our purple guards. After the “Parcours St Germain” in Paris, we worked again on the costumes, and focused on the attitude of the guards posing, as a performance, hyper-static. Doing this in the context of the Empire series made sense and I will do it again for the show at the Galerie Filles du Calvaire in Brussels (Belgium) the 20th of September. I’ll show the Empire series, the Hereros and the Seijinshiki series. I now work on a larger exhibition, combining my whole “Portraits photographiques et uniformes” project since 1999. That will be the next step.
