drift line

These two artworks speak of the making of my new identity as a French woman migrant in Australia and emerging artist.

They show two levels of appropriation and interpretation:

Firstly, I assembled shards found on the beach, remnants of earlier European settlement. I staged these found objects as one would of living characters; I enjoyed the play of their relationships.

During that period of assemblage, I wrote about my emotions.

In a second phase I photographed my sculpture and digitally edited it. By including my writing into the image I put myself into the landscape. I created a sense of belonging.
