What charmed Matthieu Chedid (alias -M-) in the work of Martin Parr was 'a combination of aesthetics, derision, kindness and tenderness'. So it is not surprising that -M-, a musician with a highly visual universe of his own, asked the British photographer to work with him on a project for both the eyes and the ears. Alongside their exhibition entitled MMM (for 'Matthieu aime Martin' [Mathieu loves Martin] and vice versa), which features the fruit of their collaboration over the past two years, the duo continue their artistic dialogue with a unique live event. Martin Parr begins with a discussion of his creative process, and is then joined on stage by -M- for a musical improvisation against a backdrop of projected photos, supported by the sound arrangements of Pierre Boscheron. Matthieu Chedid creates musical images—the audio translation of the emotions evoked by the photography of Martin Parr— in a dialogue between artists that is both tender and funny.
