Monograph (paintings and drawings).
In Raphaëlle Paupert-Borne's multifacetted oeuvre, painting has always had a crucial place. Filled with the artist's travels and journeys, it fuels her other activities, and is nurtured by them. This book is the outcome of Raphaëlle Paupert-Borne's encounters with Rome, Marseille, Constantine and Paris. Vincent Delecroix makes it the central hub of the dense and probing essay he has written about her work.
Raphaëlle Paupert-Borne (born 1969 in Lyon, lives and works in Marseilles and Paris) paints, draws, films, and does performances. She uses canvas and paper, as well as the paper of our past bedrooms, scenes of life which she grasps in short films which cast a spell over the world's ordinariness. She paints on found photographs which she makes large editions of. Her work is informed by her environment, people close to her and anonymous persons bumped into now and then, her journeys, landscapes, and what they convey by way of life “settings”. This does not so much involve reproducing as extracting scenes, gestures, instants and figures which will give rise to pictures, and give shape to a sense of the world, when it is incarnated in paint.
