“Tend à se dire” (2016-2018): this plaster diptych depicts a conflict of matter product of the contact of a fresh plaster board prepared with a mixture of photographic chemicals and a dry plaster board. After separation, this gesture gives rise to a negative-positive couple whose forms induce the transfer relationship that one possesses with the other. The title in french is a play on word with the expression «Tant à se dire» (Too much to Say) that sounds exactly the same as «Tend à se dire» (Tending to Say) to poeticcally shift the meaning towards the idea of an oscillation between an attempt of a dialogue and its excess.

Available works:

Through sculpture and installation, Julie Escoffier questions the apparition and fabrication of the image through forms escaping the flatness of a traditional photography. The image is not printed on a 2D format but rather the photographic essence get to life in a 3D space.
Thanks to physical and chemicals processes as well as with the labor of the time, her works underline the very issues that define them; such as vulnerability, durability or disappearance. If photography could be understood as the evidence of a moment, Escoffier’s oeuvre purposes an experience of the metamorphosis of a latent image.
Questioning the characteristics of analog photography, Escoffier deploys the value of its inner “index” in a process balancing a natural and scrupulously built. For their evolutives conditions, her pieces generate the experience of the memory. The point doesn't close the sentence, the ephemeral is beauty.
