Virginie Yassef: "La seconde est partie la première"
Satellite programme. “Terrains de jeux” (Playgrounds) cycle, 4/4
from 01 July 2008
until 27 September 2008
Jeu de Paume, Paris

Virginie Yassef (born 1970) makes videos, photographs and sculptures that seem to draw on the world of childhood.
Seen by this artist, everyday actions and simple situations take on a new dimension. In her project for Jeu de Paume, Yassef, who often calls on visitor participation in her installations, questions the role of the body in the exhibition space. Working with other artists (visual artists, composers), she experiments with a scenographic collaboration.


Exhibition curated by: Fabienne Fulchéri

with the support of the Fondation Nationale des Arts Graphiques
and in partnership with Art Press and Oui FM
