Our revulsion may be somewhat toned down when faced with the current context of a developing country such as Cambodia, where having a disability still excludes you and gives you little to no access to work. The Ghost House of Phnom Penh is one of the main attractions of Dreamland amusement park. In this country of superstitions, the little ghosts know how to play with the ambiguity of their appearance, a disability that becomes an asset for their performance. They also found a new family here into which they are completely integrated. “Tall” and “little” combined, we discover an ordinary youth full of life, between selfies, flirting and social media networks, indeed far from the prejudices.

The beauty of The Himalayan Region is its color and mood. I explored almost every season and made trips towards Terrain Region.

Turin; You Do Not See by Riccardo Surace

Turin; You Do Not See by Riccardo Surace

The project titled What You Do Not See, Unordinary tells the story of the City of Turin, my city, seen through the eyes of passersby. All photographs have been captured with a long exposure technique; in other words, I mixed then history of the city with my own history, my life experience. In fact, after five years spent fighting a disease, my artistic purpose is primarily that of representing the all too familiar feeling when, as a young man wandering through the city, one feels invisible, and yet still he is thoroughly involved in its daily frenzy.
Fragments by Anne-Marie Giroux.

Fragments by Anne-Marie Giroux.

Fragments is a project within a project. Since 2020, I have been working on an installation project entitled Drifts Drifting Phase II which will be presented at Espace Produit Rien in Montréal in April 2023. The installation proposes a questioning of human and artistic drift, theme that I have been exploring since 2014. Adopting a critical and mocking approach on the relevance of the very essence of the art object, I also question the relevance of being an artist, and particularly, the relevance of being a woman artist.
