Exhibition « Mademoiselle O »         May 30 – June 6, 2013     14h-19h

Galerie Mamia Bretesché, 66 rue Notre Dame de Nazareth, 75003 Paris
Métro: Strasbourg St Denis, Temple « Mlle. O », exhibit-book-performance, echoes Vladimir Nabokov’s short story written in French and published by Mesures in 1936. The new « Mlle. O » stretches its encompassing gaze over Nabokov’s memories, within the context of the international conference « Nabokov and France ». Everything but an illustration, this creation is meant as an invitation to watch, and to watch in a different manner: reading as a metaphorical prism for emerging images, or the art of taking a previously existing work to foreign territories.

The two artists, Indira Tatiana Cruz and Alexandra Loewe, developed a series of new works for this occasion – drawings, ceramics, videos, and a performance composed of four tableaux, following one another and hemmed with visual sounds resouding with the four « O »s of Mademoiselle, and inspired from their reading of the story.
