Marion Jdanoff: Guerre (second edition)
"Guerre" (War) gathers a multitude of drawings by Marion Jdanoff. This magnificent collection was selected at the Angoulême Festival in 2020 and is the result of a correspondence between Marion Jdanoff and her friend Pauline, who is fighting cancer.
In November 2016, Marion Jdanoff's friend Pauline, who is in remission from breast cancer, learns that the cancer has crept into her brain and that she has to fight it again. The author, who lives far away from her friend, has the idea of sending her enough drawings each month so that she can burn one a day until she is completely and totally cured.
Soon enough, this correspondence becomes an interface between Pauline and herself, talking about love, friendship, fear, joy, food, life and death.

About the artist
Marion Jdanoff draws snippets of stories, anecdotes and also strives to translate concepts into images. In her work, she intertwines the personal (a lot) and the political (a little) and tries to find meaning in drawing rather than in making revolution. An open and unresolved question.
Moreover, she likes to draw with other people and to make it hard to tell who is who. It is in this spirit that she founded Palefroi in 2012 with Damien Tran. Together and separately, they do everything from posters to screen prints, handmade books, self-publishing and other bazaars.
After eight years of this very intense work as a duo, the pony (Palafroi is a horse) is currently in a well-deserved grazing resource. This allows for other explorations, less focused on the multiple and mixing with other practices, dance, public occupation architecture. She also participates in the Kythibong record label in Nantes.
