Le Chemin d'Expression
Marc Quer organized a project for a group of students in the seventh and eighth grades of the Notre-Dame de la Major High School, brought together for a workshop on environmental awareness.
The adolescent of the Panier neighborhood photograph their everyday surroundings
During self-guided walks in the neighborhood, the students were asked to identify and take notes on views to photograph, and then to redo the same trajectory with a camera. The 600 images and lists of notes were exhibited in the stairwell of the middle school for a month, and then at the BCD, as part of the Transformer #2exhibition.
Born in 1965 in Villepinte, Marc Quer studied at the Architecture School and Fine Arts School of Marseille simultaneously. He lives and works in Marseille. In his installations, he places material taken from the reality of the city, the reality of people who work and those that live and sleep in the streets. Using a minimalist vocabulary and various juxtapositions, he restores the meaning of these materials and objects.
