!Small flaw in one of the upper corner!
The scent of the night was that of jasmine, a continuation of the book by FLORE, Lointains souvenirs (Éditions Contrejour, 2016), which proposed a variation around the Indochinese youth of Marguerite Duras. In this new opus, she draws from her childhood memories, from the stories of her great-parents who lived in the same period and in the same places as Marguerite Duras of unfathomable mysteries nourishing what she feels today as a part of the common imagination between her and the writer. She continues to «invent photographically» an almost mythical Indochina. Short excerpts of texts by Marguerite Duras form a counterpoint to the black and white photographs taken with tea. Through these technical processes, the artist shapes as much as she restores the world unfolded before her eyes to extract images that confront the fragility of memories and the ability of photography to create truth that is truer than reality.
