Filtre Magique

26 hand-engraved glass plates, pocket lamps and cell phone flashlights, 2022.
An interactive exhibition in the former monastery of the Clarisses in Roubaix, which seeks to highlight the forgotten women of history.


Installed in a former cloister, where a group of women once stood isolated from the outside world, Filtre Magique is a call to unveil. A modest tribute to the many women who still remain in the shadows. Within the framework of the European Heritage Days.

With the support of: HF Hauts-de-France, Région Hauts-de-France, DRDFE and Saisons Zéro (project for the occupation and reactivation of the former Poor Clare monastery in Roubaix managed by the Association Zerm).

This exhibition consisted of a collective unveiling action in which a collection of portraits of various female personalities from history was built.
The action was carried out at three different times: first an international public responded to a call for participation launched by the artist by proposing a personality along with a text, then the artist was in charge of portraying each personality on different glass plates, and finally the public who visited the exhibition was in charge of concluding the action by unveiling the “invisible” portraits. In this way, a joint action of discovery and sharing was carried out.
