BIOGRAPHIE





 “Eléonore de Montesquiou (1970, Paris) is a Franco-Estonian artist. Her work revolves around the articulation between private and official histories, personal and national identities. It tackles the intricacies and ambiguities of living in the margins. Eléonore tapes testimonies, creating prosthetic memories of repressed histories. In her documentary-informed works, her camera becomes the voice of these voiceless people.” Thibaut de Ruyter
