Images du bout du monde [images from the edge of the world]

What does Patagonia bring to mind? A land at the end of the world, the myth of giant Patagonians, the legendary beasts of pre-history.

The catalogue, like the exhibition, presents the multiplicity of representations, accounts and myths attached to the southern tip of the American continent.  It approaches these lands according to a geography of fiction, putting into perspective imaginary representations and tangible reality over nearly five centuries.
