Valérie Mréjen – Memories and Language | TateShots

Valérie Mréjen is a visual artist, filmmaker and writer. Her videos stem from the observation of everyday events and highlight laughable details of our existence.

Language and memories are central to her work which often features impromptu or restaged anecdotes.

You can see ‘Manufrance’ 2006 on display at Tate Modern.…
