MARJOLAINE VUARNESSON http://www.marjolainevuarnesson.com
Marjolaine was born in 1979 and lives near Paris. His artistic approach begins very early with painting and sculpture.
Along with her job as a financial consultant, she has always found the time to practice this artistic activity and exhibit her work.
In 2014, she turned to photography to explore new mediums, mainly the polaroid. She experiments, double exposes, transfers the gelatin, and keeps the negatives.
It is a palpable, malleable photograph, which for her represents a link between today's photography and her practice of the visual arts.
“Apparitions” is a narration in which a dialogue is created between color images and “ghost images”: Polaroid negatives.
My practice of Polaroid is mainly related to intimate moments. This approach includes an experimental exploration around the medium, in particular with the transfer of the emulsion.
Every time I make a transfer, I keep the negative.
One day, by chance during an editing, the negatives of the Polaroids mingled with the color images, and associations were born.
These associations of images evoke the dream of a woman who, confined alone at home, dreams of ideal love and then wakes up in the sad reality of her loneliness.
That morning, she wakes up in a soft torpor, the warmth of a body against hers. A hand caresses her, a skin as soft as satin, a tender kiss on her neck ... She feels good.
The sun pierces through the curtains, the day promises to be beautiful.
They decide to go for a walk in the forest. The light that crosses the canopy highlights the strange foliage that catches his eye.
Everything is beautiful, everything is perfect, she is in love.
That morning, she wakes up in her icy sheets, a strange sensation. His hand slides across the bed, even colder.
She gropes her phone, turns it on and checks her voicemail. Nothing.
The light that pierces the curtain is dull, a gray day no doubt.
She snuggles up in the duvet and closes her eyes, hoping to fall back into this dream where she felt so good ...
