The exhibition Julie Hascoët: Carrara, the twilight of the mountain
This exhibition features images by photographer Julie Hascoët. Carrara is a part of Tuscany, but far from the tourist clichés, far from the hills planted with olive trees, far from the winding cypress-lined roads, far, far from the Tuscan quality of life.
Carrara is a marble quarry. The gutted mountain, the machinery, the extraction roads. But Carrara is also the birthplace of Tuscan anarchism. In just a few photos, Julie Hascoët recreates these spaces and gives us the impression of a heavy headlong rush.
Who is Julie Hascoët
Julie Hascoët was born in Douarnenez. a graduate of the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de la Photographie d’Arles.
But she’s also a publisher, concert and exhibition organizer. In short, she’s a multi-talented artist. Although, if you think about it, her field is human life, particularly life on the margins, reappropriated or abandoned spaces, ephemeral creations of life, reinvented micro-societies.
Borderline life, old mine entrances devoured by vegetation, human settlements for wild concerts, the memory of prison inmates’ places, Julie Hacoët is interested in everything that is banally human.
For her, photography is an energy stirring matter (including human matter) and time.
