Chapter 2–Claudine

A story about family, hoarding, love and loneliness

My great-aunt Claudine is a hoarder. Her life and her house depend on a delicate balance between love and loneliness. Photographing her house has been a motive to bond, as we share the same collecting obsession. Her interior seemed chaotic to the stranger I was; after investigation, it revealed its own logic.

By Silence

'By Silence' is inspired by my encounter with a sociologist whose parents lost a daughter at a very young age, even before he was born. Devastated but worthy, they raised their other children with the weight of an absent sister.
I asked myself: where was this sister? Was she present by her evanescence? How could the photographic medium represent this absence? I searched for her in natural forms, in collective imagery and in the words of the family. As if on a path, she plays hide-and-seek with sculptures, faces and bodies that evoke meditation and retreat.
With photography, I represent this resistance of memory to time. I mix layers of time and types of images; archive images and my own material. There is a relationship to trauma, which has no place in the past and remains a constant present. Putting this sister back in the past, giving her a tomb and making the archaeology of her story and her death.
