PRESENCE is a show devoted to works by Lauren Marsolier from her Transition series. The project, developed from 2005 to 2013, delivers photographs of places which constitute carefully constructed, minimalist compositions in a muted colour palette. The spaces, devoid of any characteristic elements which would permit identification, engender reflection on our presence in a given place and the process in which it is experienced, as well as on the crucial issue of relocation and transition. In the course of post-production, Marsolier combines elements from a number of various places to create new configurations. As a result, she arrives at metaphysical and yet very real landscapes.
