The work of French artist Natacha Nisic explores the invisible, even magical relationships between images, words, interpretation, symbol and ritual. Her videos, photographs and drawings question the status of representation. They function as substrata of memory, memory torn between its value as proof and its loss. The exhibition presents several video installations created since 1995, including two new works specifically produced for the exhibition at the Jeu de Paume. Andrea in conversation tells the story of a young Bavarian woman converted to Korean shamanism and thus entrusted with ensuring the survival of this final pocket of cultural resistance. This work presents a fragmented vision of contemporary Korea in which the vestiges of different eras coexist. For f, the artist went to Fukushima two years after the catastrophe and filmed, thanks to a mirroring device, both the landscape of the disaster and the world where people’s lives go on.
