Cristal House

Since 05 / 10 to 12 / 12 | 10h - 19h

To create the “Cristal House” series, Anna Malagrida observed the life of a betting shop in the heart of Paris for days. From behind the window, she captured the comings and goings of the punters, their exchanges and their language. This is a work on the spaces dedicated to betting, the city and the interactions that, among other ways, are expressed by a mass of moving hands. These gestures are meticulously collected like so many dialogues between these characters waiting for a win, a dream to come true. Are such attitudes specific to a particular group (the microcosm of bettors) or do they constitute universal behaviour?
