Paris confiné – 2020

60 postcards. Display

On March 17th, 2020, the confinement of the city of Paris began due to the Coronavirus epidemic. The travel bans in the capital, as well as throughout the country was extended until Monday, May 11th. In the emptied historic Paris, Anna Malagrida and Mathieu Pernot photograph the city from a tourist’s point of view by creating printed postcards. On the back of these images, which the authors sent to each other by post, are written words that appeared during the epidemic. Exhibited on a display from a Parisian newspaper kiosk, the images reveal both nostalgia for a Paris of postcards and anguish of the invisible threat of the pandemic.

Le 17 mars 2020 commence le confinement de la ville de Paris en raison de l’épidémie de Coronavirus. L’interdiction de se déplacer dans la capitale, ainsi que dans l’ensemble du pays sera prolongée jusqu’au lundi 11 mai. Dans le Paris historique vidé de ses habitants, Anna Malagrida et Mathieu Pernot photographient la ville en adoptant un point de vue de touriste par la création de cartes postales imprimées. Au dos de ces images que les auteurs se sont envoyées par voie postale figure le nouveau vocable apparu durant l’épidémie. Exposées sur un présentoir provenant d’un ancien kiosque à journaux parisien, les images révèlent à fois la nostalgie d’un Paris de Cartes Postales et l’angoisse face la menace invisible de la pandémie.
