Tate Britain, Londres. Marcel Duchamp said that "the viewers make the paintings" to insist on the fact that the meaning of a work does not belong to its creator or to experts, but to the public who encounters it. I start a new series with the concept that "the painting makes the viewer". I take as a subject of study, the behavior, the feeling of the viewer as a mirror of the work. Quite quickly, the metaphor of the pregnant woman came to me, to suggest that art gives life to a part of our interiority. I will place, in each image, this symbolic character of a hyper receptivity, facing an off-screen painting. The blurred background refers to the reverse shot of this painting in the exhibition room as it is presented in Google Arts & Culture / Museum explorer. Accessories and the name of the artist placed on the bra will be additional clues for those who want to discover these paintings much more admirable than my images. Good visit.

It can only be the wonderful "Ophelia", which has inspired works of my own; a work I never get tired of studying.

You're right, it's the beautiful Ophélia. I wanted to show this moment when we let go

Thank you again for a lovely work and introduction to an artist I was only marginally familiar with. I had seen the painting Ophelia and now know more about it's artist. =)
