Sandra Daveau : Pigment Bride


Embryonic views, matrices, cocoons, female nests, human drop, ash record.

Sandra Daveau creates living tableaux of which the only trace is photography.

When shooting, she uses volatile materials (ash, flour, charcoal, clays, pigments) which make it possible to rediscover the urgency of reporting in a  work that is staged.

At 15 meters high with her team of “sprinklers”, she photographs from above the “women-brushes” who move on a gray concrete slab in constant pictorial evolution.

The 4 2-hour sessions over a 2-year period required 2 months of preparation each.

The result is a material of 600 photographs.

This creation brought together a hundred people.


An ephemeral exhibition will take place in its place of creation and will be the subject of an exceptional evening in an extraordinary visual form staged with the Off Company.
