In the basement is a presentation of work around Duroy's publication 'Unknown' from 2007, featuring fragmented images of rebels, outcasts and people in exile in Europe and the US. Laid out in three long display cabinets are 29 one-off variations of the book, which Stéphane Duroy remade by tearing the pages of the original version. Duroy's process of painting and colouring pages and covers to create 29 unique books is heartrending. This artistic desire to rework imagery to bring a greater level of sensitivity to the work reveals a moving incapacity to let go of the subject. Some images are defaced or disappear, others seem uprooted.
As fierce debate around the question of social identity in Europe and the US continues, the exhibition feels poignant and elliptical, stimulating questions.
