Edition 2022




Barbara Iweins has moved eleven times in her life and, each time, the number of objects she packed up terrified her. Over two years, at fifteen hours a week, she staged and photographed the 12,795 objects in her house, without filter or pre-selection. Next, using a rigorous system of classification, she arranged them according to their material, color or degree of use (weekly, monthly, daily, never…), separating out the essential ones. These she presents to us accompanied by carefully written short stories, as funny as they are moving, in a sensitive self-portrait of a modern woman; a
self-exposure pushed to its paroxysm.
