RESIDENTS SUPPORTED BY RUCKA ARTISTS RESIDENCY 2017

Delphine Wibaux (France)

Delphine creates pictures with plant juice, which are revealed when exposed to the sun for several days. She calls these natural, alternative photographs “Absorptions”. The image appears thanks to a negative film set on a sheet of paper covered in photosensitive juice, which she makes grom plants and weeds. Once revealed, the image keeps evolving depending on its exposure to sunlight: it follows its own life cycle. The evolution of the “Absorption” is precious : each day, it compels us to reconsider the way we look and what we see. Delphine Wibaux has graduated Fine art school of Marseille (2014) and participated in exhibitions in France and China. Read more about the artist http://www.delphinewibaux.fr/

Through many artist residency in the north of Europe (Iceland, Norway, Finland, Lithuania, Russia), in quite remote area, I develop a conscientiousness of fragile ecosystem and human challenge. The question of the landscape is the ground of my artistic thought ».  She studied fine art at Strasbourg university, graphic design at École Multimedia and Photography at École Supérieure de l’image, Les Gobelins. Read more about the artist – www.carolmuller.fr
