Marina GADONNEIX & Lynne COhen

Laboratoires / Observatoires

April 12th - August 28th 2023


The two photographic exhibitions presenting the work of Lynne Cohen, a Canadian, and Marina Gadonneix, a French woman, were intended to complement each other. Together they form a unique project that probes the spaces of our modern society


They present fifty years of the photographers' work, from 1970 to 2020. The work of Canadian artist Lynne Cohen (1944-2014) enjoys a worldwide reputation. Her photographs of the interiors of public and semi-public spaces, classrooms and shopping arcades, shooting ranges and municipal halls, have been exhibited all over the world. These images served as models and inspiration for the subsequent generation, particularly that of French photographers, such as Marina Gadonneix (1977), with whom Lynne Cohen corresponded shortly before her death. Taken in sites of scientific research that analyse and predict the effects of natural phenomena, Marina Gadonneix's near-abstract images depict a reality that has not yet come into being.
