POWERS by Jules Julien

Historically, societies are organised around leaders. Emperors, kings, popes, dictators, presidents… embody power through their legitimacy and actions but also through diverse and changing modes of representation. Symbols, clothes, weapons, portraits, badges, armour… all of these images to assert their position and build membership.

POWERS by Jules Julien is a reflection that attempts to paint different keyframes related to representation of power through the prism of change. Echoing Fontevraud Abbey which from an Abbey became a prison and nowadays is a cultural centre, the exhibition focuses on key moments in history when codes and symbols appear, disappear or reappear. 

POWERS will exhibit from the 6th June until 15th November at the Abbaye Royales de Fontevraud, France.
