Hordes & nuées
Hordes & Nuées [Hordes & Swarms] is a visual essay about animality, bringing together in a narrative sequence 104 appropriated images from 56 photographers. It explores our relationship to animality in an exuberant visual assemblage where the postures, attitudes and gestures of men and animals echo one another.
Curated with Myriam Ziehli

The Breath On Our Back
Contemporary western societies tend towards an ideal of preservation, individual protection and well-being that permeates through all instances of a daily life that sometimes ends up feeling like a utopia.
Curated with Maude Oswald
Photoforum Pasquart, Biel, 012
Panel: Under the Influence
Having entered in the visual arts often in indirect or accidental ways, photography and cinema have now become influential actors of the field, and in doing so have, sometimes significantly, transformed their own practices through contact with the visual arts and their institutions. Under the Influence addresses these “traffics of influence.”
With Alexander Birchler, Emilie Bujes, Eva Leitolf, Barbara Le Maître, Philippe-Alain Michaud, Laurent Guido.
Musée de l’Elysée, Lausanne, 2011
