Exhibition - L'image adolescente : Centre Wallon d'Art Contemporain - La Châtaigneraie

From 17/02/2018 to 01/04/2018

Hyperconnected, media saturated, worried about itself and its looks, our era appears to display itself as ever more thirsty for youth and beauty. But do we still know how to speak about this transitional stage, the ‘teenage,’ this possibly vanished ideal, this ‘poorly de ned state of adolescence, never far from erring, always on the verge of the sublime’ (Philippe Azoury) In this apparent confusion, sexual identities become blurred, states of the body become hypotheses, virtualities. Photography, video, as well as installation art and painting, seem fascinated by the always reworkable de nition of this transitional and so essential period. The image passes, in a ash; it makes us younger more and more easily, lies through its teeth, but also dies and disappears into thin air in fast-forward. Finally, is not the perpetual teenager, scandalously immature, with an intimate fragility, but with an unfathomable charm, like the image itself? (Emmanuel d’Autreppe)
