Mathilde DAREL

"Emblèmes", photographies.
(tirages cyanotypes 2009-2010 ...)

:" l'Emblème est un idéogramme, une couleur, une forme, un animal ou un autre signe conventionnel de valeur symbolique, destiné à représenter un être physique ou moral. Il permet d'exprimer visuellement une idée abstraite "
Cet ensemble est composé de diptyques de petits formats, dont les formes et les éléments représentés se répondent, nous
rappelant qu'en matière d'image, la réalité est toujours liée à l'illusion.

"Dreamlands" & Voice Crack

The "Dreamlands" exhibition at Pompideau is one of the the bleakest Ive seen in a few years.

The exhibition begins a bit out of focus; the illusionary "utopian" homogenous environment initially pioneered in early Worlds Fair (a great sexualized presentation in 1939 by Dali is covered) and Coney Island / Disneyland presentations. Continuing across the 20th century clear through to a loss of contact with reality, full on globalization, hollywood idealism, architectural misrepresentation/fantasy...
