This catalogue accompanies the exhibition of La Cour, a series of photographs by François-Xavier Gbré and Yo-Yo Gonthier, during the 2018 Edition of Paris Photo.
"The courtyard, an archeology between-worlds.
To explore, stride across, search, dig, pass by, sometimes to find.
Obliged by a rapid world based on power and domination, on isolation and borders, we are here gathered around a collective proposition questioning freedom of expression, history, art and politics. Through this collaborative work, we take the roads less travelled, with a new way of looking and seeing, in order to reflect on the society we live in.
The photographs presented here are mazes. They are invitations to navigate dilated time-spaces, where rhythms and harmonies are multiple and intertwined."
François-Xavier Gbré and Yo-Yo Gonthier, 2018
