Amorous psychogeography


Body and landscape come to life in geography of desire in this series of works made in Canada, United States and France. Love appears as a referent in these meditation proposals, in which the audience is dragged in a lost "coming and going" in the hidden corners of the body and the landscape open to the sea and the country. The study of the landscape and its impact on the subject here open a path to studying feminine desire. From Yoko Ono's cry in Fly, to the fragmentation of the works of Stephanie Barber, the tone varies greatly but the conscious relationship continues between look and desire.
