ELODIE CHANDERNAGOR

Singapore - Paris


Elodie Chandernagor is a French artist currently working in Singapore and Paris. Her work comprises painting, photography and video often to express the connection between the human body and its nearest environment. Trained as a painter, she uses the other media to express the idea of memories and address physical, and temporal relationships between Body, History and Present. Her classical training in Europe encouraged a strong sense of colour. She is a colourist above all, and from the colour comes the story, or History. In her work, she investigates the place given to history in our personal lives by asking: where does my body stand between personal and collective matters? Who am I in the world as time runs by? Bodies are the beginning and the end of this personal and plural quest, that is why they are at the centre of every work. All we are, is a body, and from this stories arise. The artist offers her story and encourage the spectator to share their own version. In the end, bodies are a blank canvas. Only once this is truly understood can mankind begin to ask : what is my place in this story?
