Tautou turns ta­bles

#Legend - - LEG­ENDA -

In a se­ries of pho­to­graphic self-por­traits on film, 41-year-old French icon Au­drey Tautou ex­plores her own whim­si­cal im­age. The star of Amélie, the leg­endary 2001 film di­rected by Jean-Pierre Je­unet, is show­ing her Su­per­fa­cial col­lec­tion to the pub­lic for the first time at a con­tem­po­rary pho­tog­ra­phy fes­ti­val in Ar­les, south­ern France, that ends on Septem­ber 24. The im­ages toy with her celebrity status, as Tautou mod­els in Cindy Sher­man-es­que style. Tautou imag­ines herself from head to toe in drama­ti­sa­tions rich with a sense of the ar­ti­fi­cial. The of­ten play­ful pho­to­graphic fic­tions cre­ate the space for a long-dis­tance look at Tautou and add another layer to the per­son­al­ity of this al­ready com­pelling ac­tress.
