JUST MY LUCK

With Cécile Hupin

2017 - ongoing


Human beings have always been dreaming about the miracle that could change their lives. The invention of lottery games, more than 2000 years ago, turned pure fantasy into reality. All it would take is a little luck to see all our dreams come true. But what is luck? And isn't it inextricably linked to bad luck? As if believing in one was to risk activating the other...

JUST MY LUCK intends to confront the dream with reality by diving into a series of testimonies of winners, losers and their relatives. Their stories question the tenuous link between luck and misfortune and tell us a lot about our society, what it aspires to, its beliefs and its relationship with money. Far from trying to relate the truth, the exhibition gives the protagonists a voice by letting them expose the subjectivity of their feelings.
