THE MAP (2010)

Statement about the videos presented in the show

My videos are a “carnet de voyage” through childhood. I am taking notes (videotaping) on a regular basis. My background is socio-political graphic design but when I became a mother, it was obvious to me that one of the strangest and most interesting thing was happening right there in my house. So I decided to watch and videotape. I have two boys, they are usually willing to let me enter their space, sometimes it is them who ask me to videotape something specific.

I am using different medium in my work, both traditional and nontraditional: video, photography, murals, paintings, drawings, digital prints. My videos are often included in large scale installations where “here” (embodied by my close family) is put in perspective with “there” (represented by events happening in the world).
