Chez Françoise


Chez Francoise

Chez Françoise was one of the last three cafés still running in Guesnain, the village I grew up in. The café went bankrupt early 2015, I am now considering buying it and renovate it...

 

An exhibition in situ took place on July 25 and 26, 2015. We reopened the café for 1 weekend to hold an exhibition during the annual village flea market.

A second exhibition took place at the public Guesnain médiathèque from September 4 until September 19, 2015.

 

A booklet was produced for the exhibitions (200 copies, sold out).

Booklet details:
A5 size (14.8 cm x 21 cm)
70 pages (54 photos + 9 portraits + 3 texts)
120 g/m2 (cover 250 g/m2)
Texts: French

On-demand printing : send me your postal address so that I can send you the booklet.

Selling price : 15 Euros + 2 Euros shipping.
Payment after reception of the book (bank transfer or Paypal).

 

The project was made in collaboration with Bernard Dal Magro, potter based in Guesnain (and as far as I know, only artist in the village).

Booklet and exhibitions made possible thanks to the region Nord Pas-de-Calais (Fonds de Participation des Habitants) with the support of Guesnain city council.

"There is a vulnerability to these people napping – a particularly private activity undertaken in public – and a refreshing unselfconsciousness: they don’t care who sees them. "
