Original text of the work in French
Translation of the text in English:
Because I found out she died on her wedding day
Parce que, 2018
Parce que means “because” in French. Each of the artworks composing the series consists in a wooden frame where a photograph is displayed under a curtain embroidered with a sentence explaining the reasons triggering the photographic act. The curtain thus covers the photograph until lifted by the viewer, unveiling the narrative explaining the picture’s origin. Parce que thus reverses the traditional relationship between image and text, and disturbs our conventional perception and processing of information.
