The three books Voilée, Non Amour and White wedding are a result of a reflection on the veil and the book medium.
The veil, a fragile and delicate fabric is also an object heavily charged with meaning and symbolic (Islamic veil). It is a powerful boundary, the point of separation between a woman and a man, the private and public, religions, worlds…
By turning transparent pages made of delicate and thin fabric a tear appears.
The book Non Amour is about rape. We enter progressively into a violent act by manipulating the substance.
