Little Big Galerie presents the work of Véronique Evrard with the exhibition Déchirures.
A poster according to the dictionary is a “Written or printed sheet, plastered in a public place and bearing an official, publicity or propagandist announcement, to which an image or a photo can be associated. Our memory is not like these photos exposed to the sun? Fading, with uncertain outlines. Some memories immediately disappear, covered by others, which little by little over time fade away, fade away, torn apart to become nothing more than shadows.
By means of a poster, I wanted to recreate this process. The time that flees, that escapes by fragmenting, and tearing our past, letting the imagination recreate its own images.
As with my characters on the posters that I designed from old photos and exposed to the ravages of time, so all that remains is a feeling, an impression, torn faces
The use of the Zeiss Nettar 6×6 camera combined with an artisanal Washi film achieves this particular result. The real does not seem to be totally captured: the medium resists the visible. It’s up to us to recreate it.
“The photographs, which cannot explain anything by themselves, are inexhaustible incentives to infer, to speculate, to fantasize.” – Susan Sontag
About Véronique Evrard
It is over time and encounters that photography has become for Véronique Evrard the best access to others. At the Agnès Varda School of Photography and Visual Techniques in Brussels, she deepened her technical knowledge, of film and digital photography.
With a resolutely humanist gaze, Véronique Evrard develops through her photos a poetic realism tinged with both nostalgia and optimism. Man in the concrete of his daily life and his environment is for her a primary source of inspiration.
Her work has already been the subject of several exhibitions in France and Belgium.
