    The artist signs her photos under the name Bella Ciao. She lives and works in Paris, but is partly from the village of Mijanès, where her maternal grandmother was born. She herself visited the village as a child during summer vacations from the 60s to the 80s.

    For the past three years, she has been collecting memories from the elders of Mijanès, interviewing them about the time, as children, when the village lived entirely from farming and stockbreeding.
    Then she asked them to show her an object from that era that belonged to their parents or grandparents.
    She then drew a portrait of each of the elders, as well as a portrait of each of the objects.
    The exhibition, entitled "PARLE VILLAGE", will run from August 1 to August 24, and will take the form of 17 diptychs, bringing together old-timers and objects from the past.
    The exhibition will take place outdoors and is free of charge. The large-format color photographs will be hung around the outside walls and in the courtyard of the Mijanès town hall.
    In addition to the photographs, a "palaver tree" in the town hall courtyard will broadcast a sound montage of interviews with old-timers, recounting life in the village from the 1920s to the 1980s.

    The exhibition opening will take place on August 1, from 6 to 9 pm.
