Voleau also re-contemplates the meaning of the ‘female gaze’; once it was a way of watching Dominican men interact with foreign women, but now, Voleau understands ‘gaze’ as something more complex. She challenges the need for the masculine and the feminine to be in opposition, hearlding instead her ‘own’ gaze. With roots scattered all the way from France to the Dominican Republic, Voleau touches on the benefits and the drawbacks of being a wanderer. She introduces her new exhibition, in which she recreates specific moments from the era of an ex-lover as a form of therapy. Another Love Story
is currently on view at the MEP Paris until August 22.
