Valérie Mréjen: Stories, memories and language

We met the French artist and filmmaker in Paris

Valérie Mréjen is a visual artist, filmmaker and writer. Her videos stem from the observation of everyday events and highlight laughable details of our existence. Language and memories are central to her work which often features impromptu or restaged anecdotes.

The French artist took us to the Aligre market in Paris where she finds vintage postcards to assemble and create deadpan stories.

Find out if her work Manufrance 2006 is on display.
