No 01 Jun Ahn

South Korea (1981)


For the Self-Portrait series, Jun Ahn photographs herself at dizzying heights, perched hundreds of metres above the void on window ledges, at the top of skyscrapers and stairwells. Not a trick of the eye, these self-portraits provoke ambiguous feelings, from fascination to rejection. By exploring the perception of space in large cities, this series also touches on the limits self-presentation on social networks.

Scenography: Displayed in a room of the Hôtel des Trois Couronnes, the exhibition is completed by an installation playing on the feeling of vertigo generated by these images.
