The photo exhibition “Lifes and objects” will soon be launched in Saint-Denis.8 December 2020
The project of collecting portraits and sounds at the garage sale of the Régie de quartiers de Saint-Denis has been completed. An exhibition is planned for the spring of 2021.
Between December 2019 and July 2020, a geographer and a photographer collected 25 portraits and interviews from visitors to the garage sale of the Régie de quartiers de Saint-Denis in the Floréal district. The garage sale is a cave of Ali Baba where second-hand objects are given and bought at low prices. People and objects meet there, and everyone has a life to tell.
This project of image and sound collection nourishes a research on the garage sale as a third party neighbourhood and as an alternative to the dominant modes of consumption. A photo exhibition is planned at the garage sale in the spring of 2021.
While waiting for details on the upcoming exhibition, here are some key photos of the project.
