Exploring Japan’s Daily Life Through the Floating Eyes of Marion Paquette

Exploring Japan’s Daily Life Through the Floating Eyes of Marion Paquette

This summer, Marion Paquette went to Fukuoka, Japan, for an artist residency at Studio Kura. She spent a month working on one of her projects, questioning polarities such as body/space, subject/environment and intimacy/extimacy, three spheres often taken up in her works.

Drawing upon her subjects of interest in other mediums, the artist also came back with a series of photography. The series was produced naturally, without any pre-established subject or logic. For the artist, photography was rather an excuse to explore the different areas of the city and discover the surrounding culture. Nevertheless, some repetitions and motifs appeared by themselves and became the basis of a portrait; reflecting on both the society, being the subject of investigation, and the artist's concerns.

This series captures a succession of paradoxes that seem to have slipped unconsciously through the images and blurs the differences between comfort and discomfort, animate and inanimate as well as visible and hidden.

 

With her minimalist yet sensitive eyes, Marion Paquette depicts a world that seems to have been put on pause. Figures and objects are floating, suspended in an aesthetically soothing environment where dichotomies are softened.
