Pauline Ballet (born 1988)
Pauline Ballet’s photograph work is delicate and poetic. Porous and strong at the same time. It is a contrast full artistic portrait of the Argentinian culture and land. The young artist´s use of colors is outspoken. They become almost neon and dramatically surreal in contras to the black background – the night sky. Ballet uses the darkness extensively in her artwork to portray the apparent beautiful and simple we all see each day of our lives. At the same time there is a feeling of intimacy to it referring to the existence of human life.
Ballet´s latest series Fantasias Argentinas was realized as part of a recidency at La Escuela Fotografía de Argentina in Buenos Aires in 2012.
Pauline Ballet holds a degree in literature and as well as a diploma from l’Ecole Nationale Supérieur de la Photographie d’Arles (2009). She has held numerous exhibitions, including Hopeless Romantic, Paris in 2014, muestra fotográfica “Miradas Cruzadas “, 2013, Rencontres, A french School, 2012, Explorations, Galerie Detaille, 2011.
