Pierre Debroux / Patricia Escriche

Borderline. Beside the personality disorder, English synonyms are a.o; „dividing line, cut-off point, equivocal“. In French, the word also refers to „border, boundary, limit“.

Pierre Debroux & Patricia Escriche’s pictures relate – each one in its very specific way – to borders & limits.

Patricia Escriche presents her series „Lusignan“, featuring work she produced during an artistic residency in the Villa Pérochon, within the 22nd „Rencontres de la jeune photographie internationale de Niort“, in France. The inspiration of this series is „the legend of the fairy Mélusine“, a local tale:
(…) „After her mother put a spell on her, the fairy Mélusine is condemned every Saturday to take the form of a serpent from the waist down. In order to preserve her appearance of a woman the rest of the week, she must keep this spell secret. If this was ever to be revealed, she would be condemned to this torment and would never find the release of death.“

Patricia starts with this story in order to meet women – every one of them being Mélusine „in her own manner“ – to take their portraits and therefore discovers a new way for her to make pictures. She plays with the limits between reality & fiction-legend – both of them melting under the public eye.

The work presented by Pierre Debroux wanders between landscapes & portraits, associating desolated streches of land & portraits of women, together or apart. You could say overlapping genres – but not only. Bodies & landscapes – if they coexist – do so only for a privileged moment in space and time. The borderline does exist, although blurred. It imposes its very own rythm.
