Listes, 2018Valérie Mréjen
Valérie Mréjen composed her « Listes » in 1997, when she completed her study at l'École nationale d'Arts in Cergy-Pontoise. It is with these collages that she developed her interest in writing and the unequivocal dimensions of language.

« The small anouncements that make up LISTE ROSE are twenty years old. It is her debut show after studying, a series of collages beginning with names in the directory, hardly exposed, have been a subject of a show in a contemporary gallery - Agnès was born in 1998, then Allia in 2007,. I wanted to propose variant, a new edition of sorts. More than the originals, which are very small, I decided to make photographic prints based on the enlargements of these cuts on recycled paper. »
As she mentions in an interview given by France Culture (La Nuit rêvée de Valérie Mréjen — 3/12/2017, par Mathilde Wagman), it is, in a way « unexpected and diverted », that she should arrive at writing through collages beginning in 1997. The series of "small anouncements", presented for the first time at Passade Retz in Paris in 1997, is shown on a different scale today by the artist.
