Paris Barricadé / Paris Barricaded – 2018-2019

Series of photographs

The Yellow Vests movement appeared in France in October 2018. It will give rise to numerous events organized every Saturday throughout the french territory and particularly in Paris around the Étoile roundabout and around the Boulevard des Champs-Elysées. The inhabitants and shopkeepers of the district then decided to install protections to protect shop windows and housing windows. On Sundays, the day after the demonstrations, Anna Malagrida and Mathieu Pernot took photographs of this district and of the protective devices put in place by the inhabitants.

Le mouvement des Gilets jaunes apparaît en France en octobre 2018. Il donnera lieu à de nombreuses manifestations organisées chaque samedi sur l’ensemble du territoire français et notamment à Paris autour du rond-point de l’Étoile et du boulevard des Champs-Elysées. Les habitants et les commerçants du quartier décident alors d’installer des protections pour protéger les vitrines des magasins et les fenêtres des logements. Les dimanches, jour d’après des manifestations, Anna Malagrida et Mathieu Pernot réalisent des photographies de ce quartier et des dispositifs de protection mis en place par les habitants.
