Desiree Dolron: Exaltation - Gaze - Xteriors until 20.12., Institut Neerlandais, Paris

Desiree Dolron’s (born in 1963) exhibition is showing, for the first time in France, three series of photographs, Exaltation - Gaze – Xteriors, which reflect the very personal nature of the artist’s work, which is both documentary in style and the work of a visual artist.

In Exaltation (1991-1999), Desiree Dolron focuses on the expression of the religious experience during trance ceremonies in festivals in India and Thailand. In her following series entitled Gaze (1996-1998), she comes back to this phenomenon in a profane context. She creates underwater portraits of people cut off from their sensory perceptions. Finally, the series Xteriors (2001- 2006), very pictorial, reveals a different world, strongly influenced by the early Flemish paintings.

In her life and work, Desiree Dolron is fascinated by the dividing line between appearance, perception and reality.

A (French/English) catalogue of the three series will be created especially for the ‘Mois de la Photo’ event by the graphic designer Xavier Barral, Director of the publishing house Éditions Xavier Barral, Paris.
