From June 3 to September 2, French photographer William Farges will take part in an international exhibition, at the Museum of New Art in Pärnu. Don't Miss this exhibition in one of the most beautiful modern art museums in Estonia!

Every summer in Pärnu, the most famous resort town in Estonia, the Museum of New Art host an international nude art exhibition. Since 25 years, this exhibition focuses on the harmony of human body and soul. Each year, depending on the theme (expectations, dreams, aliens or something else) all works try to hit different tones in the relationships between women and men, through various artistic interpretations.

In 2018, the exhibition "Man & Woman" is dedicated to the 100th anniversary of Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Finland and Poland, four times older than this exhibition!

This year, French photographer William Farges is one of the invited artists. Born in 1991, he graduated from ETPA (french school of Photography and Game Design) and the Faculty of Arts in Toulouse.

With his photographs, he tries to understand what escapes him, the others. His series explores one by one all the facets of the unknown : its body, its feelings, its language. A protocol is set up: first of all, he discusses with his models, asks them questions, tries to understand them. Then he draws the first sketches, each photograph is cleverly thought. He deconstruct, piece by piece, the image of the others and rebuilts in its own space. Nothing is left to chance, the light, the scale, the framework are his recomposition instruments. The picture frame is here not as an end, but as the beginning of the imagination.

The photographer invites us into his world, a great world without walls and especially filled with air. A world that is simpler, more understandable, more soothing... A world that he has carefully orchestrated.

Curator of the exhibition: Mark Soosaar
Place: Pärnu Uue Kunsti Muuseum (Museum of New Art in Pärnu)
