This exhibition introduces one of Wang Tingting 王亭亭 latest series called "Contenants du Passé [Containers of the past]. Wang has examined mundane everyday objects from the past that are bound to us by ties of singular intimacy. « The everyday life of the past forges our personal identities, and the ordinary objects are the materialized clues, » she explains. Wang has been collecting over the years old tableware that belonged to her own family members. By reviving these objects and playing around with them in her colourful still lives, she has freed them from the strict frameworks of personal memories, turning them into components of a new space-time dimension.
Wang Tingting 王亭亭 is an pluridisciplinary artist who has been rethinking the medium by creating works that appear at the junction of photography, drawing, and graphic design. In 2013 she received the Picto award for Young fashion photography (Prix Picto de la Jeune Photographie de Mode) for her series “Illusion”.
