The English production of "Chevalines" focused on archival research as an art practice as much as the presence of horse butcher shops in Paris from their legalization in 1866 to today.
Through historical prints, maps and texts, it presents the process of revealing alternative narratives to Paris’ working class culture. It tackling animal classifications, past and present human urban migratory flows, industrial ideologies and food as identity.
The launch, at the TOABF, included a conversation with curator Jayne Wilkinson, and in partnership with La Palette, the event was accompanied by a horse-inspired tasting.
