Dreams, fears, plans and desires. Turning eighteen with all the future ahead of you, is a particular time in life that Anne-Catherine Chevalier’s talent as a photographer has attempted to capture. Through the sensitive eye of her camera, together with Geneviève Damas’s delicately poised writing, her work has produced a collection of fifty exceptional portraits.
The photographies from the book will be exhibited in the Hangar Gallery from 12th September to 26th October, 2019.
Place du Châtelain, 18 - 1050 Brussels.
Anne-Catherine Chevalier’s photographic work is primarily focussed on questions of identity: it examines femininity across the generations, investigates the new forms of modern families, explores the teenage perception. Selected in 2010 for the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize, organised by the National Portrait Gallery in London and published in 2011 by Lannoo, the Mothers & Daughters serie has been exhibited successively in the United Kingdom, France and Belgium. The Family serie (2012-2015), was published by Aparté Editions in 2015 and then exhibited in Belgium and the Netherlands.
Successively actor, director, adaptor and dramatist, Geneviève Damas is also the author of twenty plays, five novels and a collection of short stories. Her play, Molly à vélo, received the Prix du Théâtre 2004 as the best playwright and became the favourite of high-school students with the Coup de Coeur des Lycéens de Loire-Atlantique 2006 while STIB, published in 2009, won the Prix du Parlement de la Communauté française in 2010. Her first novel Si tu passes la rivière – Éditions Luce Wilquin, was awarded the Prix Victor Rossel 2011, the Plume d’Or du Premier Roman in 2012, as well as the Prix des Cinq Continents de la Francophonie 2012 and the Prix du Roman de la Ville de Seynod in 2013. Her recent work includes Patricia (2017) and Bluebird (2019), both published by Gallimard.
