The Supermarket of Images Jeu de Paume 11/02 -07/06/2020

Dear Shaded Viewers,

More than three billion images are shared on social networks each day. The space of visibility seems to be literally inundated as if it can no longer contain the images that constitute it. As if there were no more room, no more interstices between the images.

“Faced with such an overproduction of images, questions need to be asked, more than ever before,about their storage, management, transportation (even if it is electronic) and the paths they follow, their weight, the fluidity or viscosity of their exchanges, their fluctuating values – in short, questions about their economy in the book The Supermarket of the Visible, from which this exhibition is derived, the economic aspect of the life of images is called iconomy.”
