Silenzio ! Mémoires de cinéma
“Memory does not film, memory photographs” (Milan Kundera, Immortality) This is a photographic essay on cinema, on cinema images. A work where film images are extracted from their original support and diverted from their initial context. An analysis of film images, the emotions and questions they raise when shown as photographs. A reflection on memory, dream and fantasy. Genres, histories, and eras interpenetrate and merge in these images that echo each other. They are the silent witnesses of desire and fear. They are timeless images that seem to emerge from the unconscious. Blurred images, moved, in movement in their very fixity, which refer to the confused world of the memory. Mental images, troubled and disturbing, which question the gaze as much as the mind. Images that attract and hypnotize by their sensual, nostalgic and universal language.
A chromatic and dreamlike photographic work in which glamour and suspense compete to pay a vibrant tribute to the 7th Art.
