A few years after her major retrospective at the Jeu de Paume, Valérie Jouve has a new exhibition at the Centre Photographique d’Île-de-France. Comprising around 60 works and a previously unseen film, The World is a Shelter brings together images that are emblematic of her work and new photos arranged into carefully designed ensembles that testify to her continued interest in the relationship between people and their environment.
Since the start of her career, Valérie Jouve has been bringing a unique perspective to bear on urban architecture and the human presence in cities. By combining images from different ongoing series (Les Personnages, Les Façades, Les Paysages, Les Arbres etc), she creates carefully designed ensembles, compositions of juxtaposed images taken in different places and at different times that together create meaning.
