August 27 – October 24, 2015

What is real, what is illusion? Delphine Burtin is controlling this optical confusion perfectly. She creates images that let us see things that do not exist. Delphine Burtin photographs trivial objects. Anonymous things we encounter every day, banal and common. Doing so she is experimenting with the effects of forms, colors, lines and surfaces, showing us the subjectivity of visual perception.

«By hijacking objects from their everyday use and reassigning their significance, the arbitrary combinatory game generated by the artist results in a surprising photographic language, in which objects we thought we knew become unfamiliar and the incongruous associations they set in train undermine our conventional representations.»
Emilie Delcambre, Musée de l’Elysée, Lausanne
