SIGNING MEETING WITH CHARLES FRÉGER - "AAM AASTHA" - TUESDAY MARCH 14 FROM 6:00 PM
The photographic project AAM AASTHA is an extension of Charles Fréger's research on masquerades around the world.
In India, deities are legion and take on multiple faces. They are embodied in sacred performances that take place in temples, theaters and streets. Depending on the states and their populations, the interpretations vary; the photographer has thus criss-crossed more than twenty states of the country to encounter a diversity of representations.
AAMAASTHA, whose title refers to these "common devotions", captures these striking avatars and reveals the masked game of representations, between reinforcement of power and subversion.
Meet Charles Fréger on Tuesday, March 14th for a signing session starting at 6pm!
Book available for pre-order and sent signed after March 14.
