Bercy Street Workout Photographies 2020-2023
Published by Roma Publications

Every day, people come to the municipal outdoor gym in Parc de Bercy in Paris. Among them is Medhy, who is behind several initiatives to transform the site into more than just a workout space. In 2020, he invited Marine Peixoto to photograph the scene there. Her practice then took on the rhythm of the gym. Just as some do push-ups and pull-ups, Peixoto carried out an intensive photoshoot. The routine, the repetition, and the cycle of the seasons challenged her determination to "occupy the present", forcing her to constantly renew her perspective on the same subject. This experience of exhausting a place and a way of seeing is a relentless act of faith in others and in oneself.
