Project Description

Pierre fragile is a harmonious and contrasting meeting between humanity and mineral. I explore the subject of human internal states of balance in connection with rocks. This series explore the emotional, physical, mental and spiritual balance of the human being. The allegorical universe of this series questions a search for well-being and exposes a mix of perceptions.
In my approach, I present the rocks as being the reflection that the Western citizen have of his society and his own reflection as a mirror transmitting a mixture of emotions of everyday life. I compare the robustness of this mineral to the fragility of the engine of our society, which is the citizen.
I launched an invitation to citizens inviting them to reflect on this notion of states of balance. My photographs are fragments taken from different rock formations. They question the complexity of the balance and suggest, by their compositions, a part of a larger ensemble.
Phase I: AUDIO INTERVIEWS AND RECORDINGS
Inspired by the 7 tips of the MSMQ annual promotion campaign, I went to meet different Quebec citizens to have a conversation and discuss about my exploration topic. I asked them questions about their own self-balance. I recorded each of the conversations (audio only) to inspire me during the process.
Phase II: CONCEPTUALIZATION AND PHOTOGRAPHIC PROCESS
While listening to the recordings and traveling through different regions of Quebec province, I photograph fragments taken from different rock formations in order to animate the essence and the intrinsic character of my subject.
