Marcelline Delbecq et Ellie Ga

Art Center

Fri 3 June 2017 at 1:30 pm - Centre Photographique d'Île-de-France, Pontault-Combault



A reading-performance in the form of a dialogue between two artists. An intimate scrutiny of the artworks, films and books that have marked their careers.

After studying photography, art and art criticism, Marcelline Delbecq gradually moved away from the image as such and now concentrates on writing. Ellie Ga practises a blend of narrative genres – memoirs and travel diaries – that pushes back the boundaries of photographic documentation.


Taking as their starting point Susan Sontag's book On Photography (1977), Marcelline Delbecq and Ellie Ga embarked on a long-term words-and-images dialogue addressing films, books and artworks that have marked their individual trajectories, together with historical events related (or not) to the year 1977. A compelling consideration of the way images circulate, this "personal, shared museum" will be up for reading and watching on June 3rd, with the publication of Dialogue by Shelter Press and the accompanying performance.
