Stories

A Fantastical Voyage (2014)

France and its cultural treasures offer an incredible playground for an artist as imaginative and elegant as Maia Flore. Her Sleep Elevation collection—images of beautiful young women suspended from clouds—made her an overnight star in the international art scene. Flore is part of a new generation but, even more interestingly, she belongs to the “new photography” digital generation, where images are constructed and captured in equal parts, where post-production (computer enhancement) contributes to the final result as much as the image in the shutter. As an artist who begins by scripting and storyboarding her photographs before slipping back behind the camera, this approach is one...

Situations (2012)

In the Situations series, a girl runs through varyingly weathered landscapes donning a striking red outfit. In search of a sublime freedom, she travels to find fleeting moments of communion with nature. Draped in red, she catches the light of the sun or buries herself in the fog. As though she were attempting to rediscover this space, she roams on land-locked clouds that evaporate into the landscape upon the return of the sun as it chases away their mystery. Like a game between reality and fantasy, the clash between clairvoyance and a moment of madness, the girl is amused by her emotional confusion.

Morning Sculptures (2012)

Morning sculptures, memories of the night when this bed became a boat in the middle of an ocean of sheets in which I entangle myself. The fear of giving into this quotidian fatality called sleep, night after night, in a neutral (unknown ?) environment, has left its mark on the sheets. In each one of these rooms a particular shape was born, an imaginary character rising out of the night, as though fossilized in the room. A last remnant of the dream’s realm, a single fragment of reality that vanished with the coming of the dawn. The brutality of waking up, first, where we abruptly depart from an interior world, only to be projected into the foreign space of a hotel room. As we...

Sleep Elevation (2010)

“Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night,” Edgar Allan Poe. This is how these girls, carried away in the air by objects, let themselves travel through boundless landscapes. Flying towards dreamed lands, making real a complete attraction between the character, his ideal universe and the world they live in: that is where these girls lead us. Their contorted movements are merging with the shape of the one revealing their passion. Mix of an imaginary realism and childhood memories, these beings in levitation invite us to dream, limitlessly.
