The new series “L’épopée de Jeanne d’Arc” will be at the Musée des beaux-arts de Rouen from the 19th of january to the 19th of february
This “silhouettes” series directly connects with “La suite basque” (The exhibition is still at the Musée Basque et de l’histoire de Bayonne – Baionako Euskal Museoa until the 5th of february) and once again the semiologic questions around the historical representations in our collective educations.
While representing each stereotype and cliché about the story of Jeanne d’Arc, this photographic shows the layers of the representation of this french historical icon thru its various silhouettes.
You can see the whole series on:

“La suite basque” is now taking place in the historical town of Bayonne. Can I say that it’s probably my most experimental series which came same time with YOKAINOSHIMA and right after BRETONNES. Without the BRETONNES series, I would have never walked in this direction. It’s like if LA SUITE BASQUE was still made of the silhouettes of WILDER MANN, with its landscapes, but this time, the abstraction is holding a key on this work. There will be another silhouettes series exhibited soon, in Rouen, titled “L’épopée de Jeanne”. More soon.
This project following the invitation of Association COOP contains six photographic sequences titled: “Ainarak/Exiliados, Sorginak, Gernika, Irudi, La porte du Milieu”.
