About the artwork

Having travelled the length and breadth of the United States in their camper van, the atypical photographer couple Formento + Formento continue to stage the despair of American women that they meet en route, with the series Circumstance ? America Down on Bruised Knees. BJ and Richeille Formento have together developed the hidden story of these damsels in distress, set against a modern landscape, questioning the limits of the Land of the Free. Through the use of sophisticated lighting and the quasi-systematic violence of the scenes that they create, each of their photographs denounces an omnipresent tension, extending beyond the frame of the image, as though the photograph was a thriller caught in freeze-frame. In these recent pictures taken in 2015, the artists pay tribute to the cinematography of Alfred Hitchcock, the self-portraits embodied by feminist Cindy Sherman, or the realist paintings of Edward Hopper.

“The wall belongs to the ‘retards’, ‘inept’, ‘rebels’, ‘simpletons’, to all those with a big heart. It is the blackboard of the school of life,” says French-Hungarian artist Brassaï in his famous back Graffiti. A veritable ode to urban art, Brassaï’s reflection was to mark the a...
