De fil en aiguille

Every month, the “Window Display” at l’antenne is home to a new art project linked to le plateau’s exhibitions, collection and educational outreach ventures. 


The Window Display is a foretaste of the workshops conducted this year with a group of CM1-CM2 students from the Alouettes school (Paris 19e) in which the artist Tami Notsani will encourage the children of the school to meet with the elders of the association Le carrefour des Solidarités (rue de Crimée). This meeting will take place through short recorded stories. These stories will be captured and interpreted in the form of a “photographic comic book” by the pupils and will be displayed in June in the public space of the 19th arrondissement.

Transmission and orality are at the heart of Tami Notsani’s photographic work. In this showcase, she highlights the childhood stories of the elders by proposing a wardrobe of colourful T-shirts, on which are printed photographs of the childhoods of the people who tell their stories.

The artist is looking for this universal link between generations and cultures, through a common denominator: the human being between benevolence and curiosity, mutual respect and humour.
