DEUX UNIVERS: Enfants et Femmes

Galerie Janine Rubeiz, Beirut, Lebanon
Opening reception: Wednesday, October 26, 6pm

"La photographe entremêle l'expérience individuelle à la voix collective : celles de femmes qui tâtonnent dans une suture entre deux univers, de la puberté à la ménopause. Leurs corps deviennent canevas d'expression, et incarnent leurs espoirs, leur frivolité ou leurs angoisses. L'immédiateté saisissante des portraits déroute, car chacun est un mensonge qui révèle indubitablement la vérité. Le visiteur ne sait plus s'il est complice, voyeur ou simplement témoin de cet instant de grâce fugace et presque évaporé. Ne reste que la permission rebelle, pour un moment volé, de rêver sa vie à défaut de vivre ses rêves."
– Mira Tfaily
