Should a photographic image solely be understood in its capacity to represent and its relationship to the real? If a word is put into practice by being spoken, a text by being read, how does this apply to photography? How do you put an image into practice? Faced with the image’s profusion and dematerialization, Caroline Mauxion aims to reconnect with her images through video and photography. It is by conceiving photography in its indexical logic that Caroline Mauxion seeks to explore the possible status of an image, both in its materiality and in its relationship to space. This deposit of light on the sensitive surface – this tangible and not visible link between the medium and its referent, nourishes her thoughts poetically and theoretically. The image is no longer limited only to an iconic end, it is an object to be manipulated and set in space. Her works are never fixed, but are rather in a state of movement and thus open to future transformations.
