Entre-deux

Entre-deux is a short series developed in 2010 in which the objects slowly engulf the bodies of the subjects.

While still photographing loved ones in domestic interiors, Ducharme began to actively conceal her sitters by covering their bodies – and especially their heads – with various objects close at hand. Overlain mostly with soft, comforting items such as duvets, pillows, or balloons, her subjects appear simultaneously hidden and shielded from the world; their identities masked in exchange for an overall sense of safety. Acquiring a heightened performative dimension, these acts of portraiture metamorphose human subjects into living, ephemeral sculptures created and documented by the artist. (Tousignant, 2014)
