Julie De Waroquier
Between dreams and reality, Julie creates pictures which look like they escaped from imagination and which disrupt the material world. Her photographs feed our eyes with unusual yet familiar visions to better apprehend our world. She explores the poetic value of the collective unconscious: each picture relies on classical visual codes and symbolism to express universal feelings. Between private and public, our world keeps on being reinvented.
