Visitor strives to find the right distance to capture the mystery, extreme tension and commitment of artistic work. The corpus of images are based on the subtle balance of portraits of women artists who are not in an archetypal representation but who can be guessed by touches through their process, gestures, tools, and the relation between their body and the piece of art that they are creating.
Can being a woman be considered as one element among others; sometimes essential, especially for the artists who have strategically chosen to place it as the center of their creation—sometimes secondary or incidental? Stepping aside from an idea of a curation under the main criterion of being a woman or a gender study, Visitor invites to discover the space and the precious time of the creation contained in a work in progress—to observe what makes history in the studio of these seventeen women artists.
The portrayed artists are all part of the emerging art scene and work in Paris within varied artistic practices, such as painting, sculpture, installation, performance, etc.
