Topographies of A Lie by Sue-Elie Andrade-Dé


"The present, in fact, for some if one considers it with some insistence, almost always ends up appearing as infinite space and yet without thickness which rises slowly, as a result of a resurgence invisible traces sometimes very distant of its construction. " Le Dépaysement, J-C Bailly

 "Topographies of a lie" is built as a mysterious sequence of images. It is an invitation to journey through the delineation of a landscape that conceals in itself layers of truth. In parallel with this wandering, in an area that seems to emerge from a tale, one operates a movement of thought and emotion. Indeed, "Topographies of a lie" is a form of geographic feeling where each image is a fragment of an undefined place that can reveal traces of a past in a back-and-forth between depth and surface.
