French artist Sophie Delaporte cavorts and delights with a provocative series of absurd photographs.
by Miss Rosen, May 29th, 2016.

Liberated from the confines of objective reality and absolute truth, postmodernism is truly a twentieth century mindset. With a passion for moral relativism, self-referentiality and subjectivity, postmodernism has become a highly popular perspective shared by people from all walks of life. It’s inherently nihilistic, and righteously so, preferring to focus on the fragment rather than the whole. In changing perspective, we lose touch with the known, entering into a world of illusions where all things are true regardless of fact. Postmodernism is the matrix. Might not be any coming back.

True Colors, exhibition by Sophie Delaporte

Opening of the exhibition « True Colors », March 15, 2015

 

Galerie Joseph, 236 rue Saint Martin, 75003 Paris
19/02/2015 – 02/04/2015

On the occasion of the exhibition « True Colors, Sophie Delaporte feat. Melissa Mourer Ordener », Sophie Delaporte shows 48 photographs and 4 videos she has directed, using the colorful palette that has always been at the heart of her creations.

In a small room, her muse, the performance artist, Melissa Mourer Ordener, dressed in overalls, is deconstructing fragile installations; mechanically putting colored masks in front of her face; reacting to giant plumes of smoke, blowing up and moving balloons. We can hear the muse’s voice, sometimes breathless, whispering or screaming. An industrial sound accompanies the mechanicals movements.

The work talk of politics, economics, environmentalism, artistic questions, as well as the state of emergency confronting our present society and the role and responsibility of artists and scientists.

This event is part of United Nation celebration « International year of light 2015 ».

Les instants vidéo, Marseille, November 07-11, 2014

Created 50 years ago, the Instants Video defines itself as a festival dedicated to electronic poetry.
This 2014 edition presents « Color Abstraction », a video by Sophie Delaporte form the series « True Colors », starring Melissa Mourer Ordener.

In a small room, a young woman dressed with an overall build and deconstruct fragile installations. In this video, Sophie Delaporte offers to Melissa Mourer Ordener, performance artist, to be her double. The muse turns into an artist, and the artist into a muse. By filming her optical sculptures, Sophie Delaporte questions herself about the creative process. Those ephemeral sculptures, invisible to the human eye, tend toward abstraction. They are playing with the limits of our vision and our imagination.
