Referencing Jim Jarmusch’s film "Broken Flowers", in which the hero asks his former wives for forgiveness, this work was recently performed at Château d’Oiron. The château’s collection was put together in the 1990s: works by 71 artists – including only 6 women. After a lot of research Béatrice Balcou made a series of visiting cards for the mediators to hand out to the public. The cards provide Internet links to images by women artists that could have been acquired at the time. The more often these sites are accessed, the better their listing. This virtual collection restores women to prominence in the recent history of art, in addition to raising the issue of visibility: is an artwork more visible now in a museum or on the Internet?
