ISOMÉRIE by Mathilde Magnée

Installation #5

Image of a fish tank - blue on black

In organic chemistry, an ‘isomer’ signifies the possible variations of a formula made up of the same molecules. With each new variation, their characteristics (or structure) change compared with the basic formula.

These four photographs by artist Mathilde Magnée are pictures which unfold in an organic way following a principal similar to that of isomer. The basic formula of this body of work resides in its artistic constraints, of which artificial light and the absence of context are the main points of departure.

Her approach of employing a stable formula throughout the series of work results in the dark tonality through which a surreal universe comes into being. The images contain beings and things which appear to be isolated or unrelated, but their echoes vibrate beyond their limited visual representation. Isomérie evokes other realities in its narratives: nebulous animals, objects or biological forms all seem animated by a tension, simultaneously alone but connected to each other through their core compounds.

A graduate of the Fine Arts School of Marseille and School of Applied Arts in Vevey (Switzerland), Mathilde is currently based in Australia. She has most recently been based in Tasmania developing her project exploring the thoroughbred industry.

ISOMÉRIE by Mathilde Magnée was exhibited from 7 April – 30 September 2016.
