This series of photographs questions the boundaries between genres. It portrays a youth in which masculine and feminine intermingle and merge, creating a social utopia in which man and woman mix their identities.
Trouble, ambiguity, resemblance, for a generation that takes the freedom of choice and frees itself from yesterday’s identity codes.
This text accompanied Nouta’s photographs at the Palais de Tokyo in September 2020 during the exhibition Jusqu’ici tout va bien, whose curators were none other than Ladj Ly, JR, Mathieu Kassovitz and Hugo Vitrani.
We have selected some of the “leftovers” of the exhibition, those photos that have remained outside the walls of the Palais, except for one… Through this process, we offer Nouta the opportunity to unveil on our walls those images that are equally dear to her.
A few themes from this artwork:
Nouta’s gaze is built to the rhythm of the click of her Minolta. She represents a new generation, prone to even greater and deeper doubts than those faced by our elders. Film as a soft weapon, she shoots a reality and a youth out of step, taking up the never extinguished torch of the street school, Kourtrajmé.
Today, her talent guides her in the streets as well as in the studios of major fashion brands, who appreciate at least as much as we do the vivid and sharp eye of the Iranian tiger.
The photograph is delivered in a tissue paper with white handling gloves and the certificate of authenticity. The artwork is shipped in a reinforced packaging that protects it. The combination of pigment inks and professional paper offers an exceptional result.
Its benefit : Pigment print on art paper is the most durable with a life span of over 100 years.
Simple, practical and trendy. The print is presented with its passepartout. The whole is assembled by hand with a cartfix support at the back and packed in a blister pack with the handling gloves and the certificate of authenticity. This finish is only available in standard sizes: 30x40cm, 40x50cm, 50x70cm and 70x100cm.
Its benefit : The passepartout has a neutral pH to help protect the photograph from condensation and thus increase its life span.
A classic of museums and art galleries. The art paper is laminated on a rigid 2mm Dibond support. This very resistant material is composed of a resin interposed between two thin sheets of aluminum. The no-reflection appearance and the very aesthetic aspect of this support particularly emphasize the works on art paper.
Its benefit : Dibond is a rot-proof, stainless and fully recyclable material.
Sober, elegant and modern. The photograph is laminated on cartfix and presented with its passepartout in an aluminium frame. The glass protects the artwork while increasing the brilliance of the blacks and colors. The passepartout has a neutral pH to protect the photograph by avoiding any condensation phenomenon. This is only available for S, M, L and XL formats to ensure the best rendering.
Its benefit : Aluminum is a durable material, requires no detergent to maintain and can be recycled indefinitely without losing its qualities.
A modern and refined finish that gives a lot of style to the artwork and gives an original depth effect. The print is first laminated on a 2mm thick Dibond support and then framed in a custom-made solid wood frame. This technique provides the space between the print and the inner edge of the frame. It is the star finish in galleries and among interior designers.
Its benefit : Laminated on a durable material, then framed in solid wood, the slightly recessed photograph is further protected.
