For several years, Samuel Gratacap has been visiting territories that bear the traces of a precarious, temporary occupation, of a passage and of a contemporary history: that of the paths of exile on the Mediterranean rim.
Bilateral echoes the presence - real or suggested - of exiles on the French-Italian border, and the question of their passage through this transalpine sector.
It is also a work on the landscape, on both sides of the border, the one that separates and unites us in turn. Samuel Gratacap tried to put his eyes on it and to listen to the people he met, in an effort to criticize the media images and the traditional representations that are proposed.

Samuel Gratacap (1982) was born in France where he studied art at the École supérieure des beaux-arts in Marseille. He has been researching the geopolitical crises around the Mediterranean sea since 2007. In 2013, he won the SFR-LE BAL Prize for young photographic creation with his project in the Choucha refugee camp in Tunesia. In 2018 Gratacap exhibited his work at Foam with the exhibition Les Invisibles.
Nowadays Gratacap travels a lot to mostly conflict areas to document the situation there for newspapers.
