People who have saved this event:


In her continual voyage between the waters of occidental and oriental, Mathilde Melek An, the Franco Turkish artist, questions cultural, sexual and territorial identity, memory both individual and collective, our relationship to legacy and its transmission through generations.


Her investigations result in the creation of cabinets of memories encapsulating flashes of time.

Mathilde Melek An’s constant exploration leads her to experiment with new techniques, new modes of expression and new mediums in order to make a lasting image that is yet a perpetual echo of the past. The artist republishes photographic archives, both anonymous and personal resulting in new photographic and video archives. The reality reframed and recontextualized reveals images that echo and mirror archetypes of experience. These images fight against time, bearing witness to our passage; they are the guardians of our aura. Layering images or using multiple screens projects a temporal window onto our present time.

Delving into her own personal, multicultural references An abolishes the rigid borders of the established mediums fusing together photography, video, silk screen printing and sculpture. In a quest of origins, the image uncoils the thread of recounted stories, between collective and personal memory, and reveals the portrait of multicultural identities: our worldwide legacy.
