Laurie Joly is a young artist-researcher from France, who has been working on a multidiscplinary approach towards the body, through merging issues touching the social, political and the aesthetic. Her previous projects explore the question of the presence of the body in an intangible space, and its mark left in digital spaces, as she follows a constant reflection on physical materiality and visibility .
Composing is an artwork which began in 2010, consisting of the exploration of urban spaces through the presence and the mobility of bodies in a restricted time.
This project has been exposed in several European cities and follows some rituals through the photographic medium. The artist carries out the extractions of bodies by the refraction of the light, and then builds the image and reveals the space, via serials or accumulations of shoots.
The project takes shape as a photographic series, as compositions and as a video tryptich, thus suggesting various ways of reading the space.
The piece raises questions of the organization of space that is made according to bodies as well as the condition of these bodies in the spaces.
