Cendrillon Bélanger (Canada-France)
Curator Stephen Sarrazin
Cendrillon Bélanger was born in Montreal in 1972. In the early 90s, she studied sculpture and multimedia at the Beaux-Arts in Paris in the workshops of Tony Brown and Jean-Luc Vilmouth. Her work is based on photography, performance and video, in which she deconstructs the nude in the self-portrait, playing with fragmentation, parody, seduction, and the erasing of an identity. She has participated in numerous exhibitions in Europe, Asia and North America. She lives and works in Paris.
Blonde Venus is an installation by Franco-Canadian artist Cendrillon Bélanger, who has worked for more than twenty years on the nude, self-portrait, and the space between composition and narration in which to place oneself. This work brings together a selection from a photo booth in the metro station Hôtel de Ville in Paris, and large format photos taken at night in the Cévennes. Nevertheless, from the city to the country, the frame escapes its geography, these are images that exist only with the body of the artist. To the photos are added two videos corresponding to the time-frame and their performative approach.
