The subject of my work is identity. I conceive of identity as something that can’t be unified. Multiple, plural, fragmented, split, palimpsest identity-these are terms that I work with. My pieces combine adapted to now old techniques as film photography, handpulled prints, and today’s problematics as eclecticism in a society of globalisation. I started my research from the autobiographical perspective, questioning my past and where I belonged. Using different analog cameras, it became possible for me to invoke the voice of time and tell today’s tales from a multiple perspective of the past. I followed a migration pattern. Born in Minsk Belarus, I immigrated to Germany with my family, then to France. My biography and displacements have shaped not only the content but also the body of my work. Using different types of camera is also a means to trace a parallel between plurilinguisme (languages) and non-linear narration through pictures. My pieces take the form of site-specific installations, objects, and artist books.
