Anne-Marie Garcia

Ten years after her first series of photos, one of which was acquired by the École des Beaux-Arts following the Figures du Corps exhibition, Valérie Sonnier has once again captured the fascinating and atmospheric nature of the Galerie Huguier – an extraordinary collection of skeletons, plaster casts, mummies and anatomical sculptures, both animal and human. Her photos are those of an artist, but also a teacher, bringing the past and present together whilst giving new life to historical objects, once teaching tools, that have, up until now, been frozen in time.

Her work, photography and Super 8 film, evokes a sense of the past and an ever-present ghost, the ghost of the Beaux-arts.
