Sylvie Meunier is an artist who has been collecting vernacular photographs for years. These amateur images form the privileged material of her work. To make dialogue between the images, to create assemblages, to constitute series, to tell stories are in the heart of her approach. Starting from the real to switch to fiction, sliding from the true to the false, bringing to light these snapshots of life to make them live other stories, in the form of publishing objects, books, exhibitions or installations. She regularly exhibits in France and abroad (Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, Marseille Provence 2013, Photaumnales – Beauvais, Portrait(s) festival – Vichy, Emergent – Lleida, Spain, Alwan 338 public art festival in Bahrain…).
Directed in India by the photographer Olivier Culmann, The Others is a work on the societal codes of the country and their modes of representation.
Its basic material is a series of self-portraits showing the visual and clothing specificities that define each Indian: religion, social class, profession, geographical origin…
Based on the Memory game, we have modified the rules a little.
The game includes 12 photographs (in duplicate) and 12 paintings (in duplicate).
The charts were made from the photographs. So there is the possibility to create a pair with the picture that is made from the photograph. It is also possible to play in the “classic” way.
