    Information

    In 1999, an organization that promoted emerging artists -Pépinières européennes
    pour jeunes artistes- invited Elina Brotherus to be an artist in residence at the Musée
    Nicéphore Niépce in Chalon-sur-Saône, France. Elina produced a series of photographs -
    entitled “Suites Françaises”- reflecting her interest in landscape photography and selfportraiture,
    as well as images of her own room at the hostel where she stayed. A number of
    post-it notes appear, notes on which she wrote words in French with the aim of getting to
    know a language that she was not familiar with. “Language makes thoughts possible”, said
    the artist. During her stay in France, Elina Brotherus learnt two languages: French and
    photography, as a means for self-knowledge.
