Valérie Pillon
Valerie Pillon Peau d'Ours
« Peau d'Ours » is a coat composed of scraps of plush toys. The title is a reference to one of Perrault*’s fairy tales. So the coat is filled with meaning. It allows for metamorphosis and enters into the realm of the intimate. It is also an imaginary body of tactile memories, a vestige of childhood. The installation presents both the coat itself, as an object, and staged photos featuring the coat. * A sort of French "Brothers Grimm"

Sophie Lannier

The installation « La vie l’a quittée » is a visual work and an “esthetisation” of her mother’s death, of a mother, of death in general. It isn’t a question of sordid voyeurism.
« La vie l’a quittée » includes a video of 2’50 composed of fifty photographs, a soundtrack and four booklets.
The photos were taken at three different times : the day my mother died on April 23, 2007 at the hospital, the days following her death on the road, and the journey to la Hottée du Diable, Camille Claudel’s inspirational site.
The four texts are Sa dernière nuit (Her last night), written in April 2007, several days after her death, Mon père dit que, (My father says) written in July 2007, Pull rose (Pink Sweater), written on October 14, 2007; and Naître et mourir (Being Born and Dying), written in April 2008. These four texts and 50 photos are like steps on the path of mourning.

Sophie Lannier : La vie l’a quittée


« Une partie de... » is a project of women’s portraits. Women in bed. Women in relationships. Using a ceiling camera. « Une partie de... » is not an erotic project, but rather a documentary, to say we exist, here and elsewhere, Women, together.
« Une partie de... » with society, hooking up with humanity. It’s a project that doesn’t believe that love is any more heterosexual than bonding and harmony.
Before making a book and an expo which presents the diversity of women together, lying down, in a mosaic of normal lesbian moments.
In bed.
