"the rightness of fit between silent film and collage, mute media that depend on splicing for effect" (Ben Lerner)
Since more than ten years, Nelly Sanchez practises the collage. If she experiments materilas as the painting, the cardboard, the postcard, she manipulates most of the time the glazed paper of the magazines of fashion and architecture, decoration. Materials drawn from these reviews are assembled to depict a feminine, dreamlike and surrealist universe where every element has the polysemy of the Symbol. The recurring motive for its work is the red mouth.
The modest size of her collages helps the eye of the spectator to be concentrated on an one and only scene…
Her collages began to be published in Anglo-Saxon magazines such as MungBeing ( www.mungbeing.com ), Sein und Werden ( www.kissthewitch.co.uk ), then French as Temporel (temporel.fr). She illustrates occasionally Les Cahiers des Amis de Lucie Delarue-Mardrus.
In 2010, she illustrated papers of the poet and the graphic designer Terry Finch.
In 2012, she collaborated in the cover of I Am has Magical Teenage Princess de Luke Gedde, published at Chômu Press. In March of the same year, she participated in the exhibition " Women / men. Stereotypes in the work ", gallery ABB (Paris, France).
In 2013 she illustrated Bernard Baritaud La Falaise était nue,aux Editions des Deux Mains. She also proposed a model of cover for two novels of Jean Déchamps Une ombre sur l'épaule, and Le Mausolée d'Amour. From June till September of the same year, she exposed to Pézenas in the gallery Van der Meer.
In March, 2014, around ten of her collages were exhibited at La Casa della Renna, galleria of Arte Contemporanea (Mestre, Italy), the exhibition called "Quando saro più grande". From April till September, The hotel of Europe (Dieppe, France) showed her collages as part of the exhibition " The Words and Colors ".
In November appeared the Junoesq. Literary Journal # 2 (http://www.junoesq.com/, Singapore), illustrated by some of her collages. Since June, some of her artworks are participating in the collective exhibition which circulates in Russia on the occasion of the 450th birthday of William Shakespeare's birth. This initiative was introduced by Alexandre Limarev. One of her collages, Femininity 2, helped to illustrate The Emancipation review. In December, she presented her works during the Festival of the Imagination " Fantassismik " (Rieu-Majou, Midi-Pyrénées).
At present, she's illustrating the next issue of the review Musemedusa (Canada) dedicated to the myth of Medea and theissue 11 of the review Black Scat Books.
