"Crystal Clear"
The symbolically laden, analog and digital works of the young Swiss artist Maya Rochat probe the depths of the photographic plane. Using her own writing and fragments of found images, she modifies her photographs to create radically associative compositions. She sources her own immediate surroundings, weaving portraits of friends and shots of landscapes into a dense, intimate visual fabric that is scratched, dissected, and reassembled with almost militant surgical intervention. The bitter, beautiful universe that surfaces in Crystal Clear patently eludes conventional codes of interpretation, relentlessly undermining the usual visual clichés and notions of beauty propagated by the media.
Avec le soutien de Pro Helvetia, de l'Etat de Vaud et de la Ville de Montreux.
