« La mariée » (The Bride) : “ This photographic installation shows us a partial portrait of a woman, life sized, white, veiled. Does she avoid our gaze by timidity, or by hesitation? Was the bride happy? Did she escape her predestined role of wife or she was just curious and full of life, looking outside the frame? A frame that encloses her, a frame that reassures her? So many questions, so many interpretations. What catches the fugitive body, what prevents her from going, is a mass of white tulle that comes out from the surface and piles up on the floor. « To fill the void that is traced by this photography, is an action that seeks to revive and find an area of ongoing permanence by all these elements I use to intervene in space. »
