Anna Broujean

Born in 1987 in Paris, Anna Broujean graduated from the French National School of Photography in 2015. Multifarious artist, her work is stamped with humor and mixes several mediums such as photography, text, sound, sculpture and installation. Kitsch lover, compulsive images collector, personal and institutional archives give rise to an inexhaustible stories material. Part of the 59th Salon de Montrouge (France) in 2014, her work has been amongst others shown in Marseille, Paris, London, Berlin, Montreal and Shanghai. Winner of the Roederer prize at the Planche(s) Contact festival in 2015, she’s been welcomed in artistic residencies in France, Canada and China. She currently lives in Athens, Greece.

The Shanghai Chronicles

Here, you can eat duck heads with pre-dinner drinks and wear a pyjama during the day. Here, monks play on their smartphones hidden in sleeves while you play dice in night clubs. Here, you gather at the crack of dawn to practice your Tai Chi and at dusk to dance to techno music the five choreographies the whole country knows by heart. Here, your job is to wait at the bottom of an escalator to avoid that, absorbed in their selfies, customers would fall. Here, you build Romanesque churches in cardboard cutouts to pretend like you’re in Paris and a hot pink Jesus completely stretched out is represented in the plastic stained-glass windows.

Did I understand everything correctly ? Or did I make everything up ?
