End of the Party

This series was created during a stay in Le Perche, France, in a 15th-century manor house called Manoir Michelet renovated by a French couple who are retired art dealers.

“End of the party” consists of various mises en scene involving unexplained unconscious bodies, drama and mystery, all interpreted by the photographer herself, shot entirely without assistance.

Surviving characters in this series experience a range of emotions including guilt, shock, indifference as well as benevolence. It is not clear whether someone committed a crime or witnessed an accident or a natural death. These are all inspired by the experience of living as a surviving twin. “End of the party” can mean the end of the intimate time where twins share a womb together, the end of carefree innocence once the survivor’s guilt takes root, or the moment the surviving twin lets go of the guilt and makes peace with the facts with love and benevolence.

God Confined
 

This series was created during the first French lockdown to flatten the curve of SARS-CoV-2 infections from mid-March to mid-May 2020.

The dominant atmosphere of uncertainty at the beginning of the lockdown also came with helplessness and fear. With humour as a defence mechanism, I imagined the daily life of a confined God and tried to depict how helpless this imaginary God would feel being confined and having to leave humans to their own devices.

This series does not refer to any particular religion and has no intention to question any personal belief. While this series was designed to be lighthearted, some images end up carrying heavier emotions. The various representations of the stir craziness of an imaginary God intend to provide a creative perspective on our own state of confinement - the art of spending time with oneself.
