France Dubois & Tamar Kasparian

Half-buried, half-hidden, the woman who appears in the joint work by France Dubois and Tamar Kasparian challenges and overturns expectations. The artists have invented a new language for this exhibition, a poetic hybrid, composing images in which photography and drawing blend together to model an entirely new material, both mineral and vegetable. We can almost hear the sound of the leaves rustling on the ground, the rock splitting, the bark cracking – nature becomes a protective envelope, offering the half-glimpsed woman a cocoon in which to grow, slough off her skin, scream, suffer or be reborn.
