April 27, 2022
Group exhibition: counter-visualities, Turbulence, Marseille

The exhibition Counter-visualities shows my series of digital images The Invisible hand: four prints out of eight, 75 x 50 cm, fine art print on dibond, 2022. The Invisible Hand transforms eight photographs that witness police violence by completely erasing the police officers from the image.

The exhibition proposes to explore how artists renegotiate tactics that may fall under a game of opposition between visible and invisible, but their practices also fall under the umbrella of inquiry, collective organization and participation within a complex media context. With Taysir Batniji, Matthieu Boucherit, Forensic Architecture, Thierry Fournier, Antoine Hoffmann, Stefan Kruse, Louise Moulin / Plein le dos, Estefanía Peñafiel Loaiza, Sara Sadik. Curated by Julie Martin. Opening on April 27, 2022 at 6pm.
