OLYMPIC BY CAMILLE VIVIER – BY ALICE DEVELEY

Dear Diane and Shaded Viewers,

one look will be sufficient to absorbe you in the universe of Camille Vivier. One glance and your imagination will replace reality. Is this a real woman or  a plastic model ? Why is there a chest without a head ? Submerged in a phantasmagorical atmosphere with no outlines where little faces respond to sculptures or paper bodies, spectators have no responses but the story that they have created in their minds. Built like a puzzle, the artist has imagined a work of art based on coincidences. With her polaroid pictures stuk onto tissue slices, she asks us questions : who does what, where and why ? The image is no longer a frame but a movie that we need to recreate. Mysterious, bewitching, disturbing… Camille Vivier is infinite.

Best,

Alice
