This exhibition at Jeu de Paume, the first one on such scale to be held in France for sixteen years, brings together a broad ensemble of major works, some of which are little known or have seldom been exhibited. It highlights both the diversity and the unity of the photographic work of Claude Cahun (1894-1954).
For the design of this exhibition I worked on the idea of structured fluidity, in a set where images and excerpts of texts by the artist interplay.
Here is the "making of" of the scenography.
