"the rightness of fit between silent film and collage, mute media that depend on splicing for effect" (Ben Lerner)

Presentation & Biography

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…
