Second hands exhibition at Galerie Binome has it all: creative, smart, contemporary, sympathetic, affordable… Centered around the medium of photography, the artists exposed in this “group show” have in common a fantastic sense of recycling as not one picture was taken but all works are made from old silver prints. For instance Emmanuelle Fructus cuts vintage photos of anonymous individuals and places them (more than a thousand) on a big board, transforming multiple photographs into an almost optical and geometrical work of art that purposely questioning the evolution of photography and our will to assert our identity through a picture and within broader society.

Second hands playfully questions our relationship toward photography and invites us to reflect on this medium, its evolution and the creation of identity. Definitely a must see this summer.
