Emmanuelle Castellan's art develops a tenuous relationship to space, which finds its form in an opened-up pictorial praxis. Whether they adopt the classic form of the picture, or appear directly on the wall, or take on a three-dimensional form in maquettes and installations, her works are transitory zones which contaminate space. Based on photographs that she finds in newspapers or produces herself, the artist grapples with the exercise involving the disappearance and re-appearance of the image in painting. She turns experiments into working rules; her pieces highlight the active principles behind the persistence of imagery in space and time.
