Synopsis de l'exposition

UMA is committed to presenting contemporary artists. The “Memories Paper” exhibition, devoted to the work of Nathalie Boutté, sheds light on the work of an exceptional artist. Composed of several thousand strips of paper, the works of Nathalie Boutté present the faces of anonymous. Photographed between the end of the 19 th  and the beginning of the 20 th , they are remembered to us with striking nuances and subtlety.

Visit “Memories Paper” to discover a series of iconic works by the artist, brought together for the first time, and admire

  • An extraordinary work, made of collages and entanglement of letters, on the borders of sculpture and drawing
  • Portraits of African-Americans, from the Rufus W. Holsinger Photographic Collection
  • Extremely rich notices written by the artist herself

Nathalie Boutté is a sensitive, manual artist. She manipulates paper, text, typographic gray, inks. She draws with words, writes with photos or paints with paper. It offers us a meeting, between text and image; the daguerreotype and the pixel; between the past and the future.

His work is always a rebirth, his technique still learning. No certainty, no truth, always one more experience, one more step.
