Le Gendarme Sur La Colline: Photographs by Alessandra Sanguinetti

27th April 2017 at 8:00 am - 29th June 2017 at 5:00 pm BST

Le Gendarme Sur La Colline (The Policeman on the Hill) brings together a new body of work from Alessandra Sanguinetti, as part of the second installment of Immersion, A French American Photography Commission, a program between the Fondation d’entreprise Hermès and Aperture Foundation.
Sanguinetti began her stay in France in Calais, the main seaport for anyone coming from the USA, and then traveled the country by bus, by train, or by car, from Calais to Marseille, before completing her residency in Paris. Sanguinetti explores a France in which traditions are being played out in a variety of ways as the culture begins to shift in relation to migration, growing contrasts between isolated rural communities and the more cosmopolitan cities, alongside other contemporary stresses. Rather than a documentary approach, Sanguinetti’s photographs offer an intuitive, lyrical journey that engages with the classic cultural tropes of France, as well as with the fairytales that persist and help define what it means to be French, even today.
