Perrotin gallery, Paris, is happy to present from March 16 to May 13, 2017 the screening of “WRINKLES of The CITY Istanbul”, a movie by Guillaume Cagniard on JR’s project. The artworks made within the project will be exhibited beside the screening. “In 2000, I was seventeen years old. The television, the telephone, internet and low-cost travel would open new horizons. By my side, I had my two grandmothers, born in 1915 and 1923. They were telling me about their childhood spent on two different continents, their husband who had been chosen for them by their parents. One spoke to me of decolonization which had transformed her country, the other of the war which had obliged her to run away, alone with her son. One mentioned her choice to work when women were supposed to stay at home, the other of her difficulty to learn French. They told me about 100 mile journeys prepared over several weeks, about their world where roles were defined at birth, and where religion took the role of morality. They baked me cakes with dates, flour and oil, or small and very simple biscuits.
