Valérie Collart explores, in her work, the relationship between sculpture and photography. She reflects on the penetrability of those two media by experimenting with their boundaries. The ambivalence of this artistic practice raises the question of whether Collart’s work is image or object based.

The artist’s photogravure series “Ruins” represents in this sense a material meeting between the two-dimensionality of a photo documentation and the three-dimensionality of the object. Collart’s work seems to adhere to the postmodern fascination with the archaic that uses the digital virtuality to reconstruct the figurative there where the figure and the substance seem to disappear. Her fascination with the concept of a monument, the artist’s pseudo-archaic pillars, crystallise an image of beauty frozen in time.
