La Villette : 100% L’Expo : Zoé Chauvet


La Villette presents 100% L’Expo, a panorama of young creation. Here is the work of Zoé Chauvet, presented by her text.

Altær is a photographic project born from the desire to portray people who question their gender and their relationship to identity. On this path, my friends and the people I encountered gradually transformed into a sensitive archive intended to (re)give importance to the fluidity of bodies and their stories. These numerous portraits are confronted with fragments of landscape and insolations on photosensitive paper which stand out here like lost memories which could have taken place anywhere in time. The luminogram offers a creative framework in that it also lends itself to deconstruction and abandonment, allowing these contradictory conditions to intertwine and generate new and spontaneous forms of representation.

Altær is an attempt to consider every piece of life as an archive that we create now. In this project, bodies are seen as an architecture that constructs the limit of an intangible reality that always disappears. Alter represents the mutation of bodies and minds, the reflection of ourselves in others. Altar is a mystical place of enlightenment and sacrifice. The two combine to create Altær.
