Pauline Alioua, Chris Garvi – Tableaux d’Iran
Pauline Alioua and Chris Garvi (photographs) – Jean-Christophe Béchet (text)
The paintings of Iran by Pauline Alioua and Chris Garvi, bordered by intriguing grays and velvety colors, are of a very Iranian calm: muffled silence in its desert heart, urban murmurs, muffled echoes on the edge of a sea so little visited, discreet joy of children, solitude while waiting for a bus, furtive silhouette in an alley… The deliberate absence of any toponymy doesn’t lead us astray. In response to the reality of their discoveries in film, an unsuspected part of our imagination opens up.
THE PHOTOGRAPHERS’ AUTHORS: PAULINE ALIOUA and CHRIS GARVI
Pauline and Chris met in 2016 in Marseille. Their sensibility, their origins, their interest for art and particularly photography spontaneously echo. From then on, they consider common photographic projects. In summer 2016, they undertake a first long trip to Eastern Europe. In 2017 they travel to Morocco and explore a common family anchorage there. In 2017 and 2019 they travel to Iran, whose culture, history and mystery inexorably attract them.
