Specially designed for KYOTOGRAPHIE, as part of the “ECHO” season, this exhibition brings together the works of five young French female artists selected by MEP, (Maison Européenne de la Photographie) in Paris, in order to reveal the current richness, diversity and originality of emerging French photography and lens-based practices at the crossroads of genres and disciplines. Marguerite Bornhauser, Manon Lanjouère, Adèle Gratacos de Volder and the duo Nina Cholet & Clothilde Matta embody a vibrant artistic scene in France whose practices and aesthetics are characterized by hybridity of the images and a new confidence about approaches to the photographic and filmic image. These multi-faceted talents have in common a keen sense of narrative and a taste for blurring the lines between fictions and the realities from which they are drawn.
Supporting emerging talents is a vital part of the MEP’s mission. In 2018, it created the Studio a new space dedicated to first solo shows of emerging artists committed in particular to strengthening the visibility of young women artists.

This exhibition is supported by Women In Motion , a Kering program that shines a light on the talent of women in the fields of arts and culture. Since 2015, Women In Motion has been a platform of choice for helping to change mindsets and reflect on women’s place and recognition across artistic fields.
