ABOUT CECILE PLAISANCE
Cecile Plaisance, lives and works in France.
Cecile Plaisance has toyed with the photographic medium since she was a child, when she took her first Barbie dolls photographs and attempted to capture into meaning the world around her. She has continued since taking pictures privately to pursue her longstanding inquiry of beauty, set in light of an overriding concern for how it is addressed in terms of a fleeting utility, constantly readapted and reinterpreted in various degrees of isolation, solidarity and power relations. One usually finds in her work a mixture of inquisitive voyeurism and humor, a refined mixture of deceit, fragility and innocence that makes us instantly relate to her language, and understand we are all heirs of our past and responsible for our future actions.
Plaisance refers in the following terms to the ideas which motivated her ongoing Lens Series, starting in 2013:
After working during ten years in European financial markets, and thereafter in the new technologies sector, she launched her artistic career and devoted exclusively to producing, sharing and making public what she had largely already been developing in solitary throughout different countries.
Cecile Plaisance’ is widely exhibited internationally and her work figures in important private and corporate collections around the globe.
