I was born with a gift from nature. Feeling a sisterhood of kinship with autists and savants, I have also been diagnosed neurodivergent, at the extreme margin of the mental spectrum. Blessing me with a profound and rich emotional sensitivity, my atypical neural network also colors my social interactions and makes my cognitive processes and physical sensations very different from the norm. Taking a proactive approach of radical self-acceptance, I seek to consciously translate the rare and complex experience of my senses into a visual language. STRIX NEBULOSA is a meditation on a graceful sense of intimacy with photons, a dialogue with the landscapes I am living in, and a synesthetic ode to two fleeting feelings. One, of a deep violet, full of whispers and mysteries, blossoming under moonlight and during stormy weather; it is the nest of animal instincts, staring at us, untamed and absolute. The other, resembling a golden sun in the chest, will painlessly tear your ribcage apart; it is a glorious, burning love that seems to turn flesh into light. We become whole when we experience both of these feelings.
The eye is a devourer, it feeds on light particles, annihilates and absorbs photons.
Contemplating the world, we are destroyers of light ripening into bodies of light.
Un cercueil de titane, un cercle de titans.
