Quarantine diary

2020

March 2020. It’s quarantine time in Paris. We are in isolation behind closed doors.

This quarantine journal is that of my confinement with Jeanne. Reinventing every day objects, giving them a pictorial sense and leading them to strange apparences with both spontaneous scenes and carefully constructed compositions. Playing with light that goes in and out through the windows, bounces off the walls on to the wooden floors and finally fade away. Immersed in this closed appartement the images are intimate, tightly framed with raw light. This journal is a game. Going over and over intimate everday life and seeing it differently. Daily life is tranformed into a strange world of contrasts : a strainer is used as light filters to sclupt a face, plants become sensual matter, with cast shadows and glimpses of coulours to create an original world.
