Esther Teichmann : Fractal Scars, Salt Water and Tears

Esther Teichmann est une jeune photographe résidant à Londres et qui entremêle subtilement une pluralité de médiums d’expression artistique (cyanotypes, sculptures, vidéo, texte, installations, noir et blanc, couleur). Un univers intemporel, expérimental, longuement réfléchi et qui nous séduit tout particulièrement.

Sa série Fractal Scars, Salt Water, and Tears explore les liens formels et symboliques entre la photographie et d’autres médiums (sculpture par exemple), et se propose d’explorer les thèmes du désir et de la métamorphose.

Esther Teichmann nous invite dans cet univers de rêves et de désirs. Coquillages, cascades, forêts sont autant de lieux où se perdre et répondent aux statues prises en photo, symbolisant la métamorphose, à la manière du mythe grec de Pygmalion donnant vie à sa statue Galatée. Paysages mythiques, corps alanguis, érotisme, corps de chair et de pierre, Fractal Scars, Salt Water, and Tears est assurément un travail qui va plaire lors de la prochaine édition du Festival Photo Levallois.
