Delphine Burtin is a Lausanne base photographer. Her work questions the notions of illusion and disappearance through still lifes or visual rebuses playing with the ambiguity of perception. She like visual accidents. She like thinking one has seen something that in reality is completely different. She like it when our brain plays tricks on us and creates a trompe-l’oeil, making us see and believe something that is not, in fact, there. She like stumbling around everyday images, capturing or reconstructing copies of an uncertain reality.
Her camera becomes a tool for visual experimentation. By combining images shot in the studio with those taken outside in natural light, by cutting up images and rephotographing earlier prints, She is trying to distance myself from reality in order to question it. She wonders about what lies within an image, always keeping in mind the question of how to interpret what our senses reveal. By seeking to engage both with what is shown and what is hidden, She holds up a distorting mirror that reflects parts of ourselves that do exist but that are far from being the whole truth. All this becomes an invitation to engage in a metaphorical exploration of our relationship with the world and with each other.
