Curriculum Vitae - Curriculum Vitae Michelle-Aimée



With her work Michelle-Aimée (1983) images vulnerable young woman. Bare, sensual, theatrical. Life as they experience it has an alienating feel to it. They strive to explain themselves in a strange world.
"My motivation is a personal quest for meaning. Life is unbearably frivolous. I wish I could believe in something! Through my images I express this feeling. I strive to capture the quest for meaning, by playfully referring to religion and spirituality. "
