Talents contemporains 2012 : Rahshia Sawyer at François Schneider Foundation


Rahshia Sawyer makes photographs as an inquiry into the existential questions of reality, identity, and the beliefs put in place by the individual. In the midst of life-changing events, questions inevitably arise: “Will things ever be normal again?” “When will things settle down?”

These inquiries reflect a sense of disconnection from oneself and one’s environment. The cocoon of reality is broken. Once we glimpse our construct of reality, the urge to retreat is instinctual. Our natural sense of security has us believing that we are in control of our bodies and environment, and that entropy does not apply. A break in this reality is an opportunity to see past its smooth façade, past the illusion of control and permanence, allowing individuals to examine the principles that govern mind and behavior.
