Passage à l’infini [Passage to the infinite]: two diptychs inspired by L’Art de rêver [The art of dreaming] by Carlos Castañeda. But not necessarily of the work itself, rather by their author’s approach. He used words, Marjorie Brunet, photos. Because as she says, photography is after all just a medium. And hers, moreover, is extremely close to painting, particularly the classical: the work with light, the taste for chiaroscuro, the feeling for detail, the importance of the composition. What begins here as a diptych, a sort of face to face with oneself, built around notions implying not only a passing from one to the other but also an interdependence: life/death, consciousness/unconsciousness, outside/inside. « A journey inwards unfinished, of course » its author says. Yet all the same, a few elements, beginning with that in which the models are plunged: water. Inspired by the work of Michel Redolfi and that of the video artist, Bill Viola [which was a true trigger for her] around this element, she develops as this passage, the revealer where the models show something which does not belong to them [no longer?]. And if the surface of the water – the frontier? – is still visible, the verticality of the portraits refers here to spirituality, to the question of the soul; or further hides the reasons possible. Until it renders this passage to the infinite impossible? For you to decide…
