PHOTOGRAPHIE A LA FAT GALERIE - ESTELLE HANANIA - LE 20 MAI 2010
Posted: May 4, 2010
MYRIORAMA is Estelle Hanania’s second solo exhibition. It will be held at the FAT Galerie, from the 20th of May
to the 30th of June 2010.
The artist’s photographic work draws its subject from popular cultures and traditions, pagan rituals and other ancestral
celebrations still in practice nowadays. She explores the relationship between Mankind and Nature, she follows the traces of a
half-human and half vegetal procession. Through her lens, the photographer gives us a primitive and fundamental aspect of
these strange cults to see.
The images come very close to abstraction. Here rise gigantic, tall, black and white and hairy figures, undulating their bodies
into an impressive trance. They become real and scary sculptures. Wild as well, masks made with entire birds spreading their
wings, huge organic mixes, seem to take their flight.
« Estelle Hanania, through a sort of inverted analogy, puts us in touch with the strange recognition/similarity that is to be found
between gesture of rituals and the order of Nature. She introduces us to a deep connection between the afterlife and the raw presence
of things. » Lara Sarcevic
