Françoise Huguier has been a well-known image reporter for some forty years. Images captured behind the scenes of fashion shows, in the luggage of a report in Japan, in the limbo of ghost Africa, in the bunkers of Siberia, in the backrooms of Korean society. What is less well known is that she is also an insatiable gleaner of objects, most of them brought back from her tribulations, whose collection transforms her house into a gigantic cabinet of curiosities. The exhibition Les curiosités du monde de Françoise Huguier is an unusual and unprecedented event, inviting visitors to let themselves be surprised by the discovery of her world, an incredible collection of colourful objects, from the most mysterious to the most strangely familiar. Paintings, jewellery, trinkets, cinema posters, clothes, fanzines, crockery, masks, books, dolls, carpets, shells... So many objects, large or small, spectacular or discreet, which take on their full meaning when Françoise Huguier tells their story. "This is a red star made of sheet metal that I found on a grave in a Siberian gulag. "And this? "A voodoo doll that only I can touch. Otherwise watch out for the curse! "How about this? "A teapot I bought from a young Tuareg in Timbuktu."

Françoise Huguier presents a selection of unusual and poetic objects she has gleaned from all over the world.
An exhibition conceived as a travel diary will take place at the Musée du Quai Branly - Jacques Chirac from June 30 to October 11, 2020.
