Fénautrigues, an exhibition by French photographer Jean-Luc Moulène, opened at Galerie Chantal Crousel in Paris on April 26, 2012. Moulène has worked for 15 years on this project, documenting the idiosyncrasies of daily life of this small village (of the same name as the exhibition) where his family has lived for generations. Part documentary and part archive, the photographs shown are a selection of images that offer a glimpse into the vast corpus of material that Moulène has amassed over the years. His gaze depicts a familiarity with the context and the people. The exhibition is hung in order to construct a pathway that the visitor must follow, “a stroll between heaven and earth.” Also on display in the exhibition space, the book entitled Fenautrigues, trois chemins au ruisseau, vers le haut, en bas gathers together 500 images which further develop the local memory of the small village. The show runs until June 16, 2012.
