CINEMA: histoires domestiques

France

2017 - Sélection du jury

CINEMA : histoires domestiques is a series of collages conceived as variations. Each collage was made from a picture of an unknown family. The artist makes several copies of the picture, cuts, paints, and puts the pieces back together in a new composition. Through this process, Edouard Taufenbach studies the fictional dimension of the typical family pictures. The artist slightly alters the framing of a photograph inside each composition. The eyes of the observant wanders and discover the story as they see the picture for the first time. Memories and fiction are brought together as we look at those hybrid objects, building a bridge between testimonies and imagination.
