About the exhibition
In her work, Paris-based artist and photographer Corinne Mariaud
questions the image of women and their place in our contemporary
society. The resistance of the individual, the diktat of appearance and
clichés about femininity and masculinity are at the center of her
The “Disorder” series questions the relationship between the individual
and the urban environment. Human bodies lie on the ground, sliding on the
urban matter. Within these images, people are stuck. Immobilized. Caught
in the rigidity of the environment.
As trees or fragments of green spaces are contained by the architecture,
man is framed by the urban material. Characters seem anonymous, fragile
bodies of a big commonness.
However, by the strangeness of their postures, they uproot the usual order
of things. Organic and corrosive, the supple bodies interrupt the
geometric patterns of the images. The work of the artist thus expresses a
kind of solitude, where the norm is not reassuring but constrains the
individual to a form of violence towards him/herself.
