The Author : Camille Reynaud

Biography

Camille Reynaud is a graduate of the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales (EHESS) in Paris. For the past two years, she has been living in Le Havre where she has been exploring other forms of writing as part of a master’s degree in creative writing. Two projects have thus emerged: a first autobiographical narrative based on the model of sociological investigation, by successively going back and forth between individual and collective through the multiplicity of narratives and life stories, and the crossing of various documentary sources – photographs, court records, medical reports, statistical data, testimonies and press articles; a text/image diptych at the intersection of Vivian Maier’s work with family photos and her own photographic practice.

The 2019 editions of the Cochin biennial in India, directed by Anita Dube, and the Rabat biennial in Morocco are two such events to put the spotlight on women. More and more women are named to direct foundations and museums in both the private and public sectors: Koyo Kouoh at Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art of Africa in Cape Town, Hoor Al-Qasimi for the Sharjah Art Foundation in the United Arab Emirates. Even when it comes to the art market, we seem to be reaching new equilibrium. But the nature of this feminization in art is worth closer examination. To what extent can we consider it “real”, in the sense of sustainable and egalitarian?
