In the Chambre Ordinaire series, the artist seeks to render the idea of presence and silence palpable. Her photographs are presented as sequence shots that depict active subjects in a “suspended” moment in time - an unquantifiable time and space. Devoid of any form of personal identity, the subjects only have one role to play: that of being a presence, using it to fill up space, qualifying this space through a narration without a storyboard, beginning or end. Instead of photographing a young woman seated and in the act of knitting, therefore, the artist has captured the mental landscape of someone knitting.
