Images intrusives, Intrusive Thoughts

With Mirna Boyadjian and Adam Szymanski

In French and English

5 à 7, commented visit at 6:30 PM

As if on the periphery of the gaze, because often what commands our attention is located outside the frame, the work of Ismaïl Bahri, James Benning, Ralitsa Doncheva and Miriam Sampaio carefully documents the occupation of a site which, for reasons both personal and political, is the only witness, even the sole legatee, of past or future events, giving form to an exile either desired or imposed, permanent or temporary.

For Mirna Boyadjian and Adam Szymanski, these works simultaneously harbour the risk of being intruded upon while at the same time might also become intruders. Addressing this subject from both a Mental Health and an Art Historical perspective, this visit will root its comments around diverse notions of intrusive images.
