CURRENT EXHIBITIONS

Nolwenn Brod – Les hautes solitudes Musée de Bretagne - Les Champs Libres, 10 cours des Alliés – 35000 Rennes
On the occasion of a creative residency offered by the Museum of Brittany at the Champs Libres, Nolwenn Brod chose to take this meticulous look at her native city, Brest. She delivers here a multiple and delicate portrait, from the military institution to the intimacy of the rooms, scrutinizing in the walls as well as on the faces the hidden stories of the city and the different forms of relationship to the living.
26 November 2022 - 30 April 2023
It is in the heart of a care unit for the homeless that photographer Cyril Zannettacci witnesses the outbreak of the Covid-19 epidemic in 2021.

Vanessa Winship – She dances on Jackson Galerie Le Carré d'Art - Centre Culturel Pôle Sud, 1 rue de la Conterie - 35131 Chartres de Bretagne
For more than a year, Vanessa Winship travelled the United States, from California to Virginia, from New Mexico to Montana, in search of the American dream. She dances on Jackson reads like a conversation, a poetic and rhythmic interplay between landscapes and portraits that explore the vastness of the United States, aiming to understand the bond that is created between a territory and its inhabitants.
18 November 2022 - 11 January 2023
Both are not war photographers, and both are free from the spectacular. Here, photography and painting meet, confront and respond to each other, in their capacity or impotence to declare this is war. Here, photography becomes the medium of duration and painting the medium of immediacy (as Eugène Delacroix wrote, "A painter must know how to catch a worker falling from a scaffold in the time it takes to fall").
18 November 2022 - 23 December 2022

Bernard Descamps – Au-delà des apparences Château de Tours, 25 Avenue André Malraux, 37 000 TOURS
Rather than freezing the imagination in a blissful admiration of the sublime and the otherworldly, Bernard Descamps opens back doors and harmoniously brings together cultures that are far removed from each other, allowing him to express his emotions.
28 October 2022 - 13 April 2023
Claudine Doury – Photo Phnom Penh Ambassade de France - Cambodge, Cambodge
Claudine Doury travelled to Far East Siberia for the first time in 1991, and again in 1997, to document the lives of the peoples who settled along the banks of the Amur River.

Whether in Chad for Ferhat Bouda, in Panama for Catalina Martin-Chico, in Afghanistan for Andrew Quilty or in Kenya for Cyril Zannettacci, the photographers focus their author’s eye on the profound connection between people and their environment. Their photographs reveal, beyond the figures and studies, the human reality on the ground: individuals, families, social groups whose daily life and food security are durably but silently disrupted by climate change.
6 October 2022 - 4 December 2022
Margot Wallard, Magali Lambert et Pia Elizondo – Animalités Carré Amelot - La Rochelle, 17000 La Rochelle
Le Carré Amelot in La Rochelle in partnership with the Galerie VU' welcomes a group exhibition of Magali Lambert, Margot Wallard and Pia Elizondo. They deliver photographs where the animal is as much a subject as an object of questioning on our own condition and thus give to see three photographic approaches of the animality, far from the documentary or zoological visions.
