This series was partially funded in 2020/21 by a Scholarship by Berlin Senate Department for Culture and Europe (Aurélie Pertusot, Laure Catugier, Ramona Taterra, Alice Dittmar). This year it will be funded by the NEUSTART KULTUR _ Stiftung Kunstfonds. For this year 2022/2023 I have chosen five artists: Marta Colombo, Nicole Heinzel, Vanessa Farfàn, Marion Orfila, and Emilie Delugeau.
“Even today on the artistic scene the inequality between men and women is a reality. Numerous actions are set up to remedy it. I wanted to contribute in my own way, by dedicating this series to women artists living and working in Berlin.
The idea came to me during the first Lockdown in 2020. The galleries were closed, and cultural life was at a standstill. Because I think that mutual support today is more than necessary, I proposed to some artist friends to make their video portrait, and then one thing led to another, and I created this series.”
This series is about the artistic process, about what we don‘t see, but what we can guess, once the work is finished. As for the choice of the artists, it is purely intuitive, and is made according to my meetings and my crushes.”
