Notre Quartier, 2014
Inkjet and laser prints
Dimensions variable










During two years, I collected different kinds of images : from the internet, newspapers, books, and my own photographs.

In a narrative way, and always in a different order and dimension, these images create a story which takes place in a surburban environnment. It’s like a strange moodboard for a movie.

Firstly, the idea of this work was to research about young adults who reproduce a kind of behaviour, wear a certain type of clothes, and speak a specific slang language just like comedians on a theatre stage, just because these young adults live on a suburb environnment. I was interested in the influence that architecture could have.
