La galerie de la Biennale
Presented in lightboxes, this series of photographs by Bani Abidi shows ordinary citizens who succeed in tweaking the street as a domestic space. A name, a place, a time, Ramadan: each image is accompanied by precise geographic, temporal and personal information. Reading a newspaper, combing one’s hair, making a flower arrangement, ironing or sleeping: these are the inconsequential activities carried out by Abidi’s "models" right there in the street, in a fragile yet undisguised reappropriation of public space.
