Inquire about the exhibition:

Photos and watercolours will be on view at the Almine Rech Gallery. Rebecca Bournigault replies thus to the question raised about the diversity of her activity, which compasses videos, photos and drawings:

"First and foremost, there is the content , what I want to do or what I need to give shape to. The form comes later. I am not particulary interested in video, or in photography. The tool is really just a tool. The video camera is a tool. Editing doesn't interest me, for example. But it is always very precise. I have got this digital machine but I am not fascinated by the object itself, to the point where I always have it with me. I put it away and, at a given moment, when I have to take a photo, I take it and then I go and get the machine, , or rather the tool. The one thing it mustn't do is contradict what I am going to say. There is a proper medium for this kind of thing, So, I will use it."
