Following its objective to showcase new voices of the moving image, the Jeu de Paume art gallery presents an exhibition entitled ‘Echo.’ The event honors Natacha Nisic, a contemporary French photographer born in Grenoble and currently based in the Paris area.
After her education at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs (the National Academy of Decorative Arts) in Paris, Nisic specialized in the moving image by continuing her training at the German Film and TV Academy (called the DFFB) in Berlin. As a result, Nisic is a master at expressing stories and complex relationships through videos and film. She focuses on bringing together the past and the present while revealing the complicated nature of all that goes unseen and unsaid. Her works therefore highlight these invisible aspects.
Running from now until January 26, 2014, the ‘Echo’ exhibition presents approximately 12 video installations created since 1995, with 3 of these pieces having been created specifically for this event. Guests staying at the Hôtel de la Tour Maubourg who are interested in photography or video should therefore add a trip to the Jeu de Paume gallery to their agendas. Located in the 8th arrondissement of Paris, at the Place de la Concorde, the Jeu de Paume is within walking distance of the hotel.
The works of this award-winning artist have been captured using a variety of mediums, from Super 8 to 16mm film to digital video. In addition to moving images, the exhibit will also feature some of Nisic’s still photographs and sketches. These pieces all have one thing in common: they challenge spectators to reflect on their own memories and the diverse ways in which images can be interpreted.
