Laurene Bois-Mariage “ReCollages”


ReCOLLAGES is a series of screen shots featuring open internet windows online arranged after some famous modern and postmodern collages and photomontages, here from K.Schwitters. Term derivated from the French «coller» meaning glue, collage is a technique consisting in an assemblage of separate elements and different forms of all kinds thus creating a new whole; it is also a major form of appropriation that ReCOLLAGES proposes to replay a digital way. This series experiences both the diversity of sources found on the internet and the dematerialization of picture in digital era: where boundaries between photography, painting and drawing become blurred and finally irrelevant. ReCOLLAGES starts with the omnipresence of image, and correlates an increasingly easy access to pictures with the increase of relative legal restrictions
