In my artistic work, I explore the codes and limits of photography using various means; object montages, painted backgrounds, collages, digital processing, etc. These processes serve to translate my reflections on the equivocal nature of our perceptions.
The two older works presented in this dossier are part of a series entitled « Habit of Objects ». In the past, I have assembled and photographed objects found at flea markets and staged them in front of painted backgrounds. Here, there is a reference to the early history of photography reminiscent of the studio shots taken at the end of the 19th century.
The photo collages attached to the visual file attempt to thwart the usual role of the photographic image, which shows a reality and is part of the time of shooting or digital manipulation. Instead, this recent work considers photography as a material and a support for a virtuality that tends towards abstraction.
Thus, these montages of objects and collages give birth to new figurations, bearing an earlier meaning and revealing new spaces. It is by association that these little things come to life again and question our way of seeing and interpreting things.
