Anne Laure Maison
Fascinated by the way people live in this world and deeply inhabited by her own family name (Anne Laure’s surname is Maison which means house in French), her work speaks of architecture, the relationship between people and what they build and how they appropriate it. Her last series of collages “Femme-Maison” (Woman-House) questions the image of the contemporary woman, strong, free and independent, able to carry her own architecture, her home. Proud of who they are and claiming their emancipation, these allegories are displayed on the walls of the cities that Anne-Laure crosses.
His diploma in hand, he leaves Brest at the age of 27, aboard his monohull. His journey led him to live on the African coasts, cross the Atlantic, go up the Amazon, exhibit his work in Cartagena, live with the Kunas Indians, sail on the great Pacific via the Galapagos, see the coasts of New Zealand and the Salomons, explore Papua or Borneo… This initiatory journey of more than 15 years will give rise to his singular view of the world. Photos, collage books, drawings and videos retrace this quasi-ethnological experience of family life, out of time-consuming societies, where his whole family has grown together.
