LOST CHILDREN

The project LOST CHILDREN (2008-2011) is a reflection on identity through the exploration of Old Master paintings. By appropriating these historical artworks,looking beyond their main subjects & through the means of photography, forgotten or abandoned identities are revealed within these complex paintings. Focusing on a specific infant in a minute detail of the tableau, I attempt to resurrect and re-valorize these forgotten individuals, redefining their possible identities in an alternative time-space. Though these « little people » are seemingly unimportant, unidentified extras, far from the spotlights, each one was nevertheless represented somewhere in the masterpiece’s details, the initial purpose perhaps only known by the artist.
