From December 19, 2017 to January 3, 2018 took place the presentation of the Phantasma project at Carte Blanche Gallery in Montreal, Qc Canada.
Originally, her inspiration was rooted in the idea of making photographs dedicated to a certain aestheticism of the female body, but the artist was caught in the nets of scenarios more and more daring, immodest, subjective, contrary to his goal. Vulnerable and entangled in this process, deeply different emotions emerge. The unconscious taking precedence over the imagined and imaginary scenarios, the subject is deformed, transformed, born!
"I thought I was photographing a body and now I realize I have only seen one image in my mind"
WE WALKED ON ISLANDS
Between dream and reality, without rely on frames allowing me to recognize the place, I create images which do not look like the landscapes which I photograph. Breakaways from the imagination, the eye fed by known details, by unknown plots of land, I’m probing the unconsciousness of the place in its poetry to express a unique world. I am especially interested in the connection between the space which surrounds me and my internal subjective reality; between perception and reality of the landscape. The light is there but never stopped, a call to contemplation, an invitation to give up a sort of rationality to reach the impossible and take advantage of it. We walk in imaginary landscapes, in series of timeless images.
