With the fifth exhibition of the Carte Blanche PMU opening at Le Bal in Paris with Léa Harboudin and Thibault Brunet’s Les immobiles (2014 edition), the PMU wanted to pay tribute to the Carte Blanche by exhibiting the photographs of past winners.
From January 14th to 25th on the ground floor of Le Bal, a selection of new work of four past winners: Malik Nejmi, Mohamed Bourouissa, Olivier Cablat and Kourtney Roy.
Today we’re taking a look back at the history of the PMU’s support for photography.
The Carte Blanche PMU/Le BAL started in 2010 with a 20,000€ prize, and Malik Nejmi paved the way with Turfisme, a documentary vision of the world of horse racing, followed by Mohamed Bouroissa’s RIP, which took a more conceptual approach to betting. In 2012, the Carte Blanche opened up the field by holding a call for submissions. Olivier Cablat was selected with Fouille, a highly visual work that added a new dimension to previous editions. Last year, the winner Kourtney Roy with her series of self-portraits taken in the world of games and betting with Ils pensent déjà que je suis folle.
