Playing with Old Family Photographs
BY MATHILDE LEMONNIER
@ VOL 6
ON JUL 04, 2013
A singer and actress caught in the act of distorting family photographs, Mathilde Lemonnier revisits her work with black and delightful humour. When she was very young she began by asking for a few hairpieces that she found in magazine pictures so that she could play with the appearance of her ancestors. Exploding heads, eyes squinting, the frozen past in black and white is propelled to a fantasy realm in a colorful and spirited manner. (In French)

I want to realize some picture-postcards that show “historical” family scenes.
These drows are made on tellings and descriptions of caracters and environment, so them are personalized for a single family. As if we look at an old photo album, we could have a memory sketch album.
