Artist Statement

 

Largely influenced by her fascination with the complexity of human existence, Véronique Ducharme’s artistic practice attempts to convey experiences of her relationship to the figure of the Other and what is invisible. It is fuelled by the tension between experiences of alterity and the futility of trying to grasp the essence of the Other. Contemporary photography allows her to address this tension and to articulate intimate experiences by appealing, visually, to a mode of feeling that is beyond language. Working with the ”mise en scène” in different ways, each image becomes a construction specifically created for the camera.
