As part of the 2018 season of la Cité de l’Image in Clervaux, titled “Portrait, hors cadre”, Denis Dailleux presents a selection of his series “Ma tante Juliette”.
In his series “ Ma tante Juliette”, Denis Dailleux sees his gaze returned in an unique and playful way by his great-aunt. The dialogue between the two protagonists is a constant exchange, a power play. Aunt Juliette is a strong character: she plays the queen, poses as a farmer and defies an age that shows her fragility. Through her gaze, she rebels against the camera. She confronts the photograph and claims the camera’s visual field as rightfully hers.
