Emilie Gomez

Emilie Gomez is a young photographer. I should say a belgian photographer now. We've met at the Villa Arson on our first day. Since I know her, she has developed a dark, cynic sometimes ironic artistic guideline. Her photographs narrate a weak and troubled humanity that found in their sunday activities a way to flow back the edginess accumulated. Another part of her work is the mis-en-scène of murders. Collectioning articles on specialized press focused especially on family murders she staged the situation by applying a fake ingredient that brought a burlesque atmosphere. The staged photographs reflect some Jeff Wall's influences but on the meaning she is closer to artist such as Cindy Sherman who meddles similar feelings together.
