Madame

France  • 1982

Presentation

For four years now, Madame has been working and reworking old documents and old photographs from the last century up to the 50s / 60s, to make new, more contemporary images. These original visuals have the particularity of being always articulated in the following way: an image and a punch line which dialogue without illustrating each other. Once these small-format collages are finalized, they are scanned to be printed in a very large format and affixed in the street, in order to offer passers-by an open door to an offbeat and playful imagination. It is a question here of proposing to the “spectator” an image with multiple interpretation, an open door towards an elsewhere.
