Sorbonne Art Gallery
Palais Académique du Panthéon
As part of the Photo Days festival Sorbonne Artgallery presents I'd Walk with You, But Not with Her, 'Shamans, Shrines, Scarecrows'. This exhibition of photographic works by Jane and Louise Wilson showcases the culmination of residencies held at Gapado Island, South Korea and Ise, Japan, 2020.
Both sites are protected, and at present are focused on preserving the environment. Jane and Louise spent three months with the Haenyo, female divers who are representative of the semi-matriarchal family structure of Jeju.
As described by the artists, the pieces combine connotations of discovery with inaccessibility, reverie with disappearance.
