Presentation

« My aim is to photographically represent the experimentation of spaces, objects, and of the visible. I prefer the illusion of measure to measure itself, the illusion of image to the image itself.
On the fine line between opacity and transparency, between the object of the picture and the picture of the object, I manipulate and twist the subject, the gaze, in order to question the image and it processes of appearance.
Index, Volumes and Tape constitutes a first body of research, which, through the deconstruction of the usage of photography, reiterates the question as to whether the image is a factor in the representation of absence.
Through the prism of the document and performative photography, I use the photographic tool as a space/filtre, which opacifies, blurs, deceives the perspective. Akin to a place of transformation, of distortion of the visible, which contributes to the distancing of the subject.
Thus, the manipulations thought-through in view of recording, attempt to shift the gaze, to move the object of the photograph in considering it not as a picture of something, but rather as a process of a picture.
Through this bringing into play of perspective, I am continuing my research into the materiality of the photographic image, its surface, its thickness, as well as the way in which it can occur to perform in space ».
