Blandine Herrmann (she/her) currently lives and works in Marseille, France. Her research focuses on the relationship between images, memory and painting. She uses some documents (photographic archives, family albums, botanic books, literature…) as raw materials to wonder about a collective memory and as a way of questioning our relationship to oblivion. We are faced with paintings that try to become the image but never quite succeed. These images become the realm of ghosts and spirits who watch us. During the residency, she will continue her painting research on the forest ecosystem and its relationship with childhood.

There will be an exhibition 22 and 23 September.
