Mi-homme mi-bête (Half human half beast)
Invited to share her vision of Deauville, Isabel Muñoz decided to work around horses and the sea. Visible muscles, short coat, protruding eyes: horses have always been fascinating the photographer, who can already see the results of this choice. Following her research about body and movement, this new photographic series keeps questioning about the world. After the primates (Album de Famille series, 2016), this approach on the equestrian universe highlights the relationship existing between men, animals and nature. On the beach, in the water, Isabel Muñoz seeks a sort of fusion between men, horses and water. About twenty pictures tell, through close-up views, captured or anticipated gestures, her experience in Deauville.
Commission: Audrey Hoareau / François Cheval


At the corner between Rue Tristant Bernard and Boulevard de la Mer.

"I love working on the skin, and more generally on organic matters. The skin represents the limit of our body, like the coast represents the limit of the earth. Didier Anzieu, in his book titled Le Moi Peau, mentions a double skin: an inner envelope containing, bounding the body; an outer envelope protecting it.” […]
“Deauville, resulting from the erosion of limestone cliffs, is characterized by a long sand beach. During this stay, I’d like to work on the relationship between the sand and the skin, and use the sand (a matter) as a narration support.
Working with the sand intrinsically involves an ephemeral dimension. I love the idea that the creative act is linked to the present moment. Life is movement. Creating works that have nothing eternal makes sense to me: they correspond to our essence, they reflect our condition. A big part of this work will be focused on our ephemeral dimension and, by contrast, on our relationship with the eternity.”


Next to Place Claude Lelouch, in front of the municipal tennis fields.

La Chatonnière de Deauville
In Deauville, a pedestrian crossing links the toddler nursery with the senior activity centre, respectively welcoming children aged from 3 months to 3 years and elderly people aged from 60 to 95. These two places face and organize their days according to similar rhythms and appointments: morning activities, lunch, siesta, afternoon activities, then a snack and, in the late afternoon, back home. Liz Hingley has been seduced by this proximity and neighbouring characterizing Deauville, and by a symbolic life course starting on one side and ending on the other side of the road. During Planche(s) Contact 2018, she wants to study these two universes for several days and favour meetings and exchanges between these two generations. It’s not just an anthropological or social process. It’s mainly about revealing through photography the real or spontaneous echoes among these two segments of life.


Next to the Town Hall, 69 rue Victor Hugo.
Open every day from October 20th to November 4th, then on Saturday and Sunday, 10:30 am > 1 pm and 2:30 pm > 7 pm.

Vent de Poussière (Dust wind)

"I think that the essence of an exhaustive, human and not superficial photographic narration is the personal perspective we instil to it. In Deauville, I want to stroll around following my instinct, instead of establishing a specific objective. I don’t want to photograph Deauville in a methodological way, but transmit a more sincere feeling about my experience and the time spent there.
I want to take photos of the city and its inhabitants (at their place, working, on the road), but also the beach and its lights, the roads and their shadows, proximity and distance, my encounters and adventures, the history of this City and the footsteps of people passing by, the small secrets and mysteries of their life.”


Access from the Boulevard Eugène Colas.
Open-air exhibition.
