©Communication Ville de Mougins, 2021

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 to October : from 10am to 7pm Closed on Tuesdays
November – March : from 1pm to 6pm Closed on Mondays and Tuesdays

© 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 )

By : Natasha Caruana

In her quest for an explanation of love at first sight, she attempts to approach the truth on this unexplained phenomenon through photography.

« I would also like to be / A work on jealousy »

By : Jenny Rova

Jenny Rova imagines herself in the position of her ex-boyfriend’s new girlfriend by superimposing herself on their life together, through photos downloaded from Facebook. The artist jealously puts herself in the place of the new girlfriend and stages herself, imitating her pose, her expression, her clothes, all in order to paste her own image on the original. Taking the place of the new girlfriend, she is able to briefly see herself as part of her ex-lover’s life once more.

« Les chutes du patriarcat »

By : Émilie Pugnot

Founded by Émilie Pugnot in 2017, C.R.I.M.E-Photo or Centre de Recherche International sur le Mode d’Emploi illustré par la Photographie questions the images and tools of the popular, the world of work, of workers and their know-how by putting them in tension with the art world.
