After Midnight





It is now 2 minutes to midnight : the Atomic Scientists (Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, january 2018) moved the Doomsday clock ahead 30 seconds, the closest we’ve been to midnight since 1953.

The statement explaining the resetting of the time of the Doomsday Clock notes: “In 2017, world leaders failed to respond effectively to the looming threats of nuclear war and climate change, making the world security situation more dangerous than it was a year ago—and as dangerous as it has been since World War II. The greatest risks last year arose in the nuclear realm. North Korea’s nuclear weapons program appeared to make remarkable progress in 2017, increasing risks for itself, other countries in the region, and the United States. Hyperbolic rhetoric and provocative actions on both sides have increased the possibility of nuclear war by accident or miscalculation ….

The images hang from the ceiling within the space, proposing an ambulation between them, creating an ethereal, labyrinthic and inviting structure. The silk allows them to slowly and slightly move, according to the passage of air in the room, enhancing the floating effect.
The proposition of a magnetic bug, a distorsion of physical laws.

What will happen after midnight?

Afterimage






An afterimage is an image that continues to appear in one's vision after the exposure to the original image has ceased.      

The series Afterimage shows a group of 12 photographic images printed on fabric, staged in front of a dark backdrop and captured a new. The prints on fabric are used as images but become objects in front of the camera, and the subjects themselves of the photographs.
The content of the original images become secondary. They conceal and reveal themselves, taking shape, rising, falling, crumpling, being drawn tight. Remnant fragments of colors, patterns, places and bodies borrowed from some other realities, and finally taking part in the same entity. The images become migrants in an in-between space. A substance of image is captured in the photograph displaying this transitional moment of coming into presence.

Awakenings






Awakenings shows an ensemble of installations involving two diametrically opposed material in terms of density. The volatility of the image is taken away and wedged in heavy matters. Marble pieces and plexiglas slab meet images printed on a very thin fabric (cotton veil) on the floor and bring us back to the material reality, questioning the status of the image.

Onde






Three images printed on veiled cotton, and doubled with a silver organza layer, forming wavy folds on the surface. Three rhythms proposed around a unique image of a couple thrown in a spiral movement, finding themselves between what the philosopher Gilles Deleuze names the smooth space and the streaked space.
