At Photo Elysée

"Histoires de nos corps" Project

From Friday, March 8 (from 3 pm) to Sunday, March 10
Non stop during museum opening hours

Photographer Nora Rupp sets up in the hall of Photo Elysée with her small house, which she calls a place of one's own to give voice to women.

As part of her current research, the artist welcomes visitors, one by one, for an intimate sharing moment about the history of their bodies. They will be asked questions such as, "How has your perception of it evolved over your life?" or "What are the most significant events that have happened to it?"

Self-portraits from her Un corps à soi project, created over a period of 20 years, will also be presented in the Photo Elysée hall, as an invitation to dialogue and a reflection of the exchanges that will take place within Un lieu à soi.

Screening of the short film "Ours" by Morgane Frund, 2022 (in French)

From Tuesday, March 5 to Sunday, March 10
Non stop during museum opening hours (duration: 19 min.)

An amateur filmmaker has been filming bears for years. He contacts a film school looking for someone to make a film with his footage. A student responds to the call. While digitizing the video tapes, she discovers that there are not only bears on the magnetic tapes but also... women. This leads to a questioning of the power of the gaze and its voyeuristic violence.
