Historic Territories

Anne-Marie Filaire is building a body of work that is dense, engaged, rigorous and monumental. Her first series, made in the 1990s in her native region of Auvergne, was her first foray into landscapes and led her on a long-term personal and photographic quest. In Temporary Security ZoneMucem, Marseille, presents Filaire’s investigations from the last 10 years, from 1999 to the present-day, when she travelled to the Near East and East Africa. A series of images captured in Israel-Palestine, Lebanon, Eritrea and Yemen document the scars and ravages of infinite time. Until 29 May.
