Ce qu’il reste des vagues
Anaïs Boudot walks; on a mountain, in a forest, as close to water as possible, wandering territories to glean materials she will then use to create images. Halfway between a mystical quest and a photographic mission, her approach continues in the laboratory where, as an alchemist- artist, she extends her experiences with natural elements. Within that technical exploration of analogue printing on glass, she gives prominence to movement and welcomes accidents. And then, in darkness, light suddenly appears, golden or silver, but also bright slivers and breakage. Alone or as polyptychs, her images possess great materiality and attract perception. The gaze interferes with real or represented interstices, makes the connection between these temporal rifts; a wave unfolds, and then withdraws.
For a ppr oc he, Ce qu’il reste des vagues (what’s left of the waves) gathers three corpuses of enigmatic images that are out of time and closer to feeling. La noche oscura series was created in the Spanish Sierra through her residency at Casa de Velazquez, and continued in France for the Epilogue part. Whereas Le reste des vagues and Un rayon dans cette mer sur une lune series were made in Bilbao Arte Residency. These unique gelatin silverprints question the process of appearance of the image in photography.
