Through an artistic photographic style focusing on the spaces she encounters and those she recreates in a studio, Laura Bonnefous offers us a photographic, sculpture-like practice. Stimulated by the relationship that humans have with the spaces and shapes that form our contemporary landscape, she is inspired by the things that surround us to create her own more personal and metaphorical spaces. The images she creates lead us into a world where the shapes are upside down or objects make the characters move, where mythologies are reversed. By thinking about her work as a whole, by getting closer to the performance, Laura Bonnefous creates her photographic works. Both pure and astute, her images create a kind of archaeology of the future.
Out of Line offers an exchange between the body, space and clothes. A shift of the view towards compositions that become sculptures. The human is introduced then accentuated by a more primary force, its body and its originality. The clothes embody it, the colours and the materials get tangled up and gathered together. You can no longer distinguish the individual elements but only see it as a whole. The shapes re-draw themselves, the characters are revealed, the hybridising is created between human and textile materials.
