Stéphanie Solinas and Valerie Fougeirol in conversation, Villa Medicis, Rome

  • Villa Medicis 1 Viale della Trinità dei Monti Roma, Lazio, 00187 Italy (map)

This evening’s conversation is between Stéphanie Solinas, grantee of the French Academy in Rome, and Valerie Fougeirol, curator of “Le Pourquoi Pas?” Solinas explores, through images, the invisible presences that surround and inhabit our identities. In “Le Pourquoi Pas?” Solinas has researched hidden worlds flourishing in Iceland: the underworld of the dead, the hidden landscape of elves, the telluric panorama and the genetic web. Solinas’s exploration of the visible and the invisible is guided by mediums, geneticists and artists that have entrusted her with their beliefs. Solinas's “Le Guide du Pourquoi Pas?” is upcoming publication by X Artists’ Books.
