The Mougins Center of Photography has chosen to present in its store products that distinguishes itself from the usual “souvenir shops” in museums.
The Center wishes to support artistic creation and not play the card of overconsumption by avoiding the pitfall of gadgets and by favoring the prism of design. The ambition is to address a large public, both in terms of generation and social background, offering a wide range of prices.

The store is open during the exhibition periods :

April – October: from 11am to 20pm Closed on Tuesdays
November – March: from 1pm to 6pm Closed on Mondays and Tuesdays

Find us at 43, rue de l’église 06250 Mougins.

Cahiers #4

« Every day is Saturday » : Tom Wood
Tom Wood or Photie Man photographs everyday life, roaming the streets of his hometown. He paints the portrait of Liverpool and its people, caught on the spot on the top deck of a bus, on the ferry, in the markets or at a nightclub. Tom Wood’s photographs are not edited, not cropped. What is available to see is there, before us. A compulsive gesture, an incisive gaze, the peril of the contact sheet that can tell a story or just as easily miss it. So, we should be as generous as the artist who gives all that he can. Without ulterior motives, Cahiers #4 mix up the gazes and undertake a collective reading of this Liverpudlian universe.

Authors :
Yasmine Chemali, François Cheval, David Peace, John Peel, Alexis Tadié, Leïla Vignal.

Around the exhibition “Everyday is Saturday”

« Mères, Filles, Sœurs »

This book is the first time Tom Wood has been discovered in France. Here he pays tribute to women, to their lives as mothers, sisters and daughters, to the intimate complicity and humanity that connects them together. Sometimes posed and sometimes captured in the streets of Liverpool, in black and white or with his own particular colour palette, Tom Wood’s portraits offer an exciting dive into the pop England of the 70’s and 80’s, and give off a strength and presence of wonderful intensity.

« TOM WOOD, TERMINI. GWINZEGAL »

By: Tom Wood

Since 1975, Tom Wood has been obsessively photographing everything around him: the streets of Birkenhead, where he lives on the suburb of Liverpool, the passengers on the bus he takes daily, first to go to work, and then compulsively for years, as if to satisfy his thirst for looking at the world in photographs.

TABOURET TAMTAM. BRANEX STUDIO. STAMP ÉDITION.
ORANGE, BLUE OR GREEN.

At the end of the 60’s, Henry Massonnet, who ran a bucket and cooler factory for fishermen, came up with a small, light and handy stool to sit on while fishing. In 1968, the first Tam Tam stool (named after the musical instrument) left his Stamp factory and was a great success, far beyond the closed circle of fishermen. But its dazzling success was considerably slowed down by the 1973 oil shock and Henry Massonnet stopped production in the early 80’s. In 2001, Sacha Cohen, then a shrewd bargain hunter, found the original mould of the famous Tam Tam (No. 169) and decided to reissue it and create his own design house, Branex Studio.

FORMcard

By: Peter Marigold

FORMcard is a handy, pocket sized card of meltable bio-plastic. Simply drop it in a cup of hot water to make little solutions to everyday problems. When it’s cool it’s really strong like nylon, so you can make solid durable solutions with it, and then you can reheat it again and again to adapt, change and reuse it. Because it’s a convenient card size, you can keep one in your pocket, wallet, kitchen drawer or tool box so that it’s there whenever and wherever it’s needed. A great benefit is that when it’s very hot, it sticks to some other plastics, so you can actually use it to instantly fix say…. a favourite plastic shovel when you are on holiday, or a broken fridge drawer. It’s also bio-degradable, so that at the end of it’s life it can be composted.

Price: 8€ (pack of three)
