Painting with watercolour and acrylic, and in Payne’s grey only, Giulia Andreani conjures forgotten histories, buried narratives and invisibilised people. As a “memory worker”, she composes her pictures from various sources – archival documents, vintage photographs and screen grabs of auteur films – to craft possible new ways of reading history. At Lugdunum, she exhibits a series of paintings that recall symbols traditionally associated with fragility, but which reveal multiple promises of resistance and strength. While Victory is usually represented as a winged goddess in Greco-Roman culture, Giulia Andreani portrays her as a mutilated little girl whose wings have been replaced by crutches. Far from celebrating warlike conquests, the work underlines the absurdity of conflicts and victories.

Also on view at the Fagor factories and in The many lives and deaths of Louise Brunet at the macLYON.
