Autumn's Residence, France

To question the territory around highschools and to stage posing high school students, both young adults and players performing in this peri-urban theatre, this sums up Claude Pauquets project on which he worked during the winter of 2013 at the highschool of Bois dAmour in Poitiers.

The special feature of this highschool is that it is located in the outskirts of the city and Claude Pauquet has photographed the highschool students during stagings in areas near their school : parking lots, woods, hotels, car garages, hypermarkets, brownfields and vacant land, all of these are places where you rarely see pupils.

The photographer asked the high school students to take a step to the side in their everyday life and to interpret another reality. The device, the occupation of space, the presence of lightning, the trick of the construction of a representation, emphasize both the strangeness of the scenes and their narrative aspect.
