  • About the Artist

Playing with words as much as with images: this is what drives Gaëlle Callac's work. Because words are of capital importance to her. Whether they appear at the heart of his works or their presence is more discreet in particularly chosen titles, they are part of the same narrative movement.

For the past fifteen years, she has been deploying a story likely to find an echo in everyone's mind: an intimate story that would not be personal, but on the contrary, would become universal, in the refusal of what Gilles Deleuze called the “little private affair”. Therefore, the use of media considered obsolete - the super-8, collage, engraving - and the use of subtly outdated referents - the old postcard, the proverb, the alphabet - awaken a somewhat dormant collective memory. , in the digital age and its many avatars.

Gaëlle Callac's aesthetic owes far and wide to surrealism, that of Max Ernst's collages, René Magritte's paintings or the 152 proverbs of Benjamin Péret and Paul Eluard. She is also very marked by the cinematographic writing resulting from the New Wave, whose purity does not exclude a certain lyricism.
