Amélie Lainé lives and works in France, near Paris. She holds a Master's degree in Visual Arts - Panthéon-Sorbonne University, Paris, 2008 and a Bachelor's degree in Aesthetics - Panthéon-Sorbonne University, Paris, 2005.
I see my work as a transmission, the testimony of a reflection on the world around me: we are only the trace of a collective memory. The themes that I develop are most often social, societal, such as the place of women in society, the panoptic effect of video surveillance, the authority of society, tolerance of encounters, the environment... Human themes that feed the news.
Photographs are representations of scale model sets. They are empty places, with no living presence, where I install different elements in order to build a personal universe. Each manufactured object has a defined place to guide the spectator's reflection.
I make the objects with several techniques: painting, sculpture, drawing, plaster, clay, wood, polystyrene... What matters to me is the final rendering for the shooting.
You can find different objects in several photographs because I recycle them. I like to create these small objects according to my style, they have an artistic existence independent of the picture and are reusable.
The spectator can project his imagination in this empty space in order to make his thoughts travel, assemble the different clues on the subject and grasp my idea. It is a questioning, but the choice of the answer is left to the viewer.
The place interests me because it is perennial, it transmits culture and bears witness to our passage.
My photographic places are to be animated, to be reanimated sometimes. The human presence is intensified by the trace of its furtive passage, its mortality.
I have always been fascinated by colours, there is no such thing as a plain colour in Nature, light is a multicoloured spectrum where colours combine.
I have been painting since I was a teenager, trying to transmit through pictorial colours, the light on objects, beings, plants.
I build the subject by uniting the colors to work with characters, animals, living beings. I try to reveal an emotion through an atmosphere where the hues are superimposed. My works arise from a feeling about the world around me.
Today, I have the impression that images swallow us up, they are thoughtless snapshots of our lives: we need to show who we are through demonstrative and quickly forgotten photographs. We look at the world through a screen.
I realized that all these images are suffocating me. I need to give meaning and growing emotion to the ones I'm building.
